A Never Tried Color Combo

Hey there and welcome. Today, I want to share a card with an unsual (for me at least) color combo. After coloring the image with Prisma pencils, I heat embossed it: first, I used clear, then I grabbed holographic powder. It’s so hard to capture on photos, but the shine and sparkle is so beautiful, I love it. To assemble the card, I followed a sketch provided by Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. I also colored in some vellum with super dark gray alcohol marker, so that the pattern paper slightly shows through. As a final touch, I added some white ribbon, tied a bow (which really took me like ages...), and my card was done.

I hope you like how it turned out and thanks for stopping by.




Stamp used: My Sweet Rose (StarStampz)
