Yesterday I saw Taheerah playing along with Mama Elephant’s January photo inspiration challenge, and I felt inspired to join in.
The only downside: after I was done making the card and photographing it, I realized the challenge entry was closed!
Here is the inspiration photo:
I have combined pink with gold before, but not with silver and pearl, which in this photo looks amazing!
Here is the card I came up with:
Yes, those silver glitter blobs are nail polish. I was going to do thin swirls, but I accidentally dropped those large droplets and decided to just let them be instead of wiping them off.
Before applying the nail polish, I heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder, then added Distress ink (Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick) using a jumbo sponge dauber. I don’t know if it is the sponge dauber or the paper (Bristol 100 lb) that allowed me to apply ink from the center without getting ink smudges. Normally I apply ink starting off the page, and slowly go in with a circular motion.
I am not sure I like the card very much, but it was fun playing along a challenge after a long period of dormancy!
