Modern Bloom, Take 2

Yesterday's card did the trick and got my juices flowing!  I used the same cover die again, and here's what I made.

supplies: white, pink, gold foil, Sea Glass, Green Apple, and Green Leaf cardstock, PinkFresh Studio Modern Bloom cover die, Penny Black Your Day die

It's a calming thing for me to take a die like this and add the details with colored cardstock, so I cut it from pink and 2 greens, and set them aside.  Then I embossed the die onto a panel of white cardstock.  That was then my starting point to add the details.  I glued each colored piece to the corresponding raised part on the white panel.   I had originally planned to then attach the finished panel to a pink panel, but at the last minute I decided to cut the die one more time from Surf Blue and glued on the background pieces.  After deciding on a gold sentiment, I then framed my panel in the same gold.

It took me all morning, but I count that as time well spent, as it kept my mind centered for that bit of time.  And I like the mosaic effect that this technique results in!

And then I did another card.  This time I embossed the die like I did above, and then just watercolored the leaves and flowers.

supplies: white and mint cardstock, Modern Bloom cover die, Zig brush markers and water.

I left off a sentiment on this one for now.  

We're off to a new week - wishing you well!

Two fabulous looks with that die, Lin! Just love the inlaid one - such great colors and I know what you mean about it being relaxing to assemble! Very pretty in the embossed one with watercolors too - you did an amazing job with it!!

Incredible Lin. I can imagine it did take a while to get the first one done but the results are so worth it. The card is amazing. And love the way you did the second one. It is so soft and pretty.
