Topic: Scrap Recovery
I wanted to use a bunch of coordinated scraps to create a background and the ones I found were a combination of dots, stripes and banners. They were all in the rosy pink and grey color palette.
I used them in the sizes they were found in and adhered them to a base card before trimming them to a good size for a card front which would leave the borders of a black base card showing.
The colors were perfect for a Valentine card so I went looking through the sticker stash for some roses. Oh, I found some all right, but they were in a light purple and salmon-y yellow.
I realized that was NOT going to work with my background so I used an alcohol marker to color over the blooms and buff the color in with a cloth. I did the same with a green marker over the leaves.
After applying this large sticker on the scrappy card front, I decided the flowers needed more definition so I used a fine black marker to outline every petal and leaf.
I used a rub-on to add a sentiment to the upper left.
