Love You

So, I've decided to enter this card in the Creative Embellishments February Challenge.  The challenge was to pick something from the photo that inspires you and to have an ombre effect somewhere on your project. My eye was drawn to the flowers, the shades of pink, and the ribbons throughout.


This is my favorite card by far! I made this card for my husband and I am in loooove with it!  I used my flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to decorate it and I embossed a few chippies from Creative Embellishments.
The chippies that I used are from Creative Embellishments. The swirly chippy is Flourish 24 and it reminded me of the ribbons throughout the photo.  I love that it follows the height of the card.  The "love you" chippies are from the I love You Set which is perfect for this challenge.  I embossed all the chippies with my Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder.
Again, my inspiration from the photo were all the flowers.  A cluster of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers with a heart locket sit on a doily that has been sprayed with Prima color Bloom tea stained spray. Love it!!  This is where I tried to add the umbre effect by adding white gesso to the tips of some of the darker flowers and darker ink to the tips of the lighter colored flowers.

I layered my papers lighter to darker to create a subtle umbre effect and then rolled back the corners to reveal a stamped corner.
