Second Runway Inspired Card

Well, here I am again with another card for  Runway Inspired Challenge #23.

Lately I have been making a lot of white based cards, or simply plain bases if not white. I am glad I have finally made one that has a textured colored base.

Another thing I am happy about this card is that it was so much easier to photograph. I only took five shots and chose one of them. Whereas white based cards give me so much grief! I sometimes take 40 to 50 shots! and I am never completely satisfied with them.

Anyways, onto the card; for the background, I used a technique shared by Gina K. in one of her videos. You can see it here.

The flower is from Hero arts and is stamped with black on white card stock. I tried to add glitter dots on the flower center, but when they dried, they became one big glittery smudge. Either I need a different kind of glitter glue or use something like silver liquid pearls. It still gives a nice shine though (you can’t really see it in the photo).

The leaves are from a Stampin’Up punch. and the “thanks” from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for looking!
