Delicate Sweet Peas

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

Before I share today's card with you, I must apologize for my absence, excepting scheduled DT posts.  Life has been crazy for some time, which is also why I'm posting this immediately it's written on Tuesday instead of scheduling it for tomorrow!

With that said, today's card features a new Groovi innovation from Linda Williams and Clarity... Contour plates, on which the embossed line art varies in width, giving a calligraphy look.  As always, artist extraordinaire Linda's work is STUNNING... 


In keeping with the delicate blooms, I colored the images lightly at the edges with a pink pencil, blending the color into the rest of the petals.  I also love how the differing colors on the background paper change the colors of them... so I hope you'll agree that this post was worth waiting for?

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's clear parchment and designer paper
Groovi Plates: Linda's Sweet Pea Contour
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating and cutting tools, Perga liner pencils, blending oil and nibs, and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges... 
#30 at NBUS (the Groovi plate is NBUS)
AG at 613 Avenue Create
#145 AG at ABMTTC

I promise I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then,

#33 Purely Plum at Rainbow Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the first of the month, so it means it's time for a new challenge at Rainbow Card Challenge.  Our theme this month is Purely Plum, and please, if you must, use only a hint of a preferably neutral color.  After all, we are a monochromatic challenge!


And here's my card...

The card was created with a then new to me duet plate, but instead of threading it with ribbon, I used offcuts of the parchment, showcasing the color flooded side.  I then attached the panel directly to the card base by hiding double sided tape behind the faux ribbon

Card: Unbranded white and Clarity's plum parchment
Groovi plates: Congratulations Ribbon Lace Duet
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating and cutting tools, and a gold Posca paint pen

Challenges...
AG at 613 Avenue Create
WK 35 AG at Polkadoodles
#8 AG at WWODTC

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
