This card was made for the Just Add Ink challenge, based on this gorgeous colour scheme:
I loosely painted and splattered the background with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours and then had fun layering die cuts and wood veneers to create the focal point.
I had to cut up my clear stamps to create the 'Oh happy day' sentiment for the faux flair embellishment, and deliberately let the gold embossing get a little messy to go with the overall artsy feel of the card.
The 'enjoy' sentiment was die-cut from gold foil cardstock and adhered to some glossy black cardstock, then a few gold sequins and black drops from a Pico embellisher were scattered around the card.
I love this refreshing colour combo, it makes me happy!
My apologies for the lousy photography! Just making do with my phone until I can get a real camera :-)
