H2H - Enchantment Abounds


Welcome to another challenge at Heart 2 Heart. This week, the challenge is Enchantment Abounds. Since this is a Close To My Heart based challenge site, Enchantment relates directly to a line of papers, inks and related products that are carried by Close To My Heart. There are 10 colours in that colour group: Saffron, Goldrush, Poppy, Ruby, Pomegranate, Eggplant, Sapphire, Peacock, Fern and New England Ivy.
Enchantment can also relate to something enchanted such a a magical forest or something similar.

I chose to go with the Enchantment colour palette.

My card is for a male friend who is celebrating a birthday. I created the background in Design Space by cutting out the triangles from a rectangular base piece. I used three inks on a large block to create the background. I just tapped the ink pads (Goldrush, Ruby and Sapphire) in various places until the block was covered and then let the ink bead with small drops of water added. I turned the block over and pressed it onto the cardstock. The Ruby ink turned much darker than I expected. I backed that piece with some retired embossed cardstock.

The sentiment is from a retired stamp set called Tagged with Love. A few ribbons and embellishments were added to finish off the card.
