Hi everyone! I'm Susanne from Germany and on the guest Design Team this summer. This is so exciting for me!!! It's my first post today and I'd like to show you a rainbow flower card! I'm a fan of bright and happy colors. On the video below you can see how the background is created. I used VersaMark ink and some of the Faber-Castell PITT® Pastel Pencils.
After the background is finished I'm going to embellish my card and add a sentiment. For the sentiment I used some of the brand new Chalk Board Paint. I coverd my cardstock twice before I stamped on it with my white pigment ink pad. I decided to cut it into a banner because I wanted a loose look on the heavy background.
For the rolled flowers I painted some Gelatos® on wet watercolor paper and blended them with my fingers. I used the Lemon, Mango, Red Cherry, Metallic Melon and Bubble Gum Gelatos®. After it dried I cut the flowers with cutting dies.
As I like the look of enamel dots I decided to create my own. It's really easy. I painted with the Bubble Gum, Metallic Mint and Pistachio Gelatos® randomly over a gessoed cardstock, sprayed some water on it and blended them a little bit. When it was dry I cutted some small circles. After I adhered them to the card I covered them with Glossy Accents to add dimension.
At the end I'd like to introduce myself a littel bit. My name is Susanne Rose and I'm from germany near munic. I am 33 years old and mum of two wonderfull kids! When I was about 13 years old I started painting and my passion playing with colors never stopped. I love photography and so I became a scrapbooker and also a cardmaker. I have much fun doing mixed media creations. I'm happy when I create my own design paper instead of using a bought one. If you'd like to see more of my creations you are welcome on my blog.
I hope you are inspired! Have a nice day!Susanne.
