Chrysanthemum

Welcome to my blog.

It's a CAS card today. This was made very quickly but I did spend some time thinking over how to use the flower in the card!
I have a chrysanthemum stencil which I used to outline on a black paper, then using water color pencil did some shading. After that I was totally confused, how to use this panel. Finally I mounted this on a bright pink card stock and added glitter foam strip at the top and bottom layer.








I liked how it turned out but still felt something is missing, finally giving up on the thought of adding any other element.


Entering into following challenges.

  9. The chalkboard effect on this is really lovely. It's something I've yet to master, so thanks for the inspiration! By the way - you should add your blog web address to the "about" section of your Google+ so people can find you more easily! :)
