So I managed to eek this card out before closing up the scrap space in my old place. We're revisiting an older set from Uniko Studio known as Pure Florals: Gerberas.
This set is jammed packed with tons of lovely designs and flowers that are nice and big. Here is my simple one-layer card using some perfect pearls.
Stamps: (Pure Florals: Gerberas) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Sweet Blush) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Versamark; Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko; (Perfect Match Ink - Raspberry Fizz) Papertrey Ink
Embellishments: (Perfect Pearls - Perfect Bronze) Ranger; (Gelly Roll Metallic Collection; Glaze - Clear) Sakura
As you can see the Gerbera blooms are huge and take up a good third of a standard A2 card. I stamped one blooms first with Raspberry Fizz, cleaned it up my stamp real good and stamped the other two with some Versamark and dusted with a nice Perfect Bronze color.
(I'm sure if Simmi could read my blog he wouldn't appreciate me telling everyone that I'm chuckling as I write this post from my bed with him cuddling and snoring at my feet. I wonder what he dreams about...chasing birds? being an action hero cat?)
Unfortunately what I can't photograph well is the Sakura clear gel pen on the pink blossom. I actually meticulously colored each of the petals with a clear gel pen and it looks great in person. If anyone has newbie photography tips, let me know! But gloss is one of those tricks. I'll try to look into this, and if I do turn out victorious, I will post a pic up here or on flickr.
Hope you feel inspired to get your crafting up and going again.
