AH 370 - Holographic Paper with Flowers

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #370!

This week's sketch is so perfect just as it is - and I didn't alter much except the sentiment shape.  

I chose a stamp set called Wild Rose to stamp my flowers and leaves. They were coloured and then die cut. The sentiment was stamped and also die cut along with a gold glitter paper background. The background paper is holographic paper (and very difficult to photograph) and I embossed that piece. A strip of Gold Shimmer Trim was added and then the flowers and leaves were adhered. I added a stitched background piece around the card to bring out the green of the leaves and the holographic paper. The centre of each flower had a gold gem added and the other gems were coloured to match the flowers. I also brushed around the centre of each flower with the Clear Shimmer Brush. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.

  1. I can't imagine how cool that must look in real life with the holographic paper and effects from the light. Nice take on that sketch too, I really struggled with that one!

  2. Hello, Alyson! It's been way too long since I've visited your blog! Your flowers are gorgeous and I like how you used holographic paper! I agree, very hard to photograph so a beautiful as it looks in the photo, I know this card is even more gorgeous in real life!
