Hello Fetti Fans! Ali here and It's great to see you again on the Reverse Confetti Blog - hope you are doing ok and keeping up with some crafting. I needed some 'pretty' in my life this week and the floral images from Happy Mail were just perfect for some delicate softness. I love that my Reverse Confetti stash has such diversity of images so that I can feed my eclectic approach to crafting (more on that below).  Read on for details of my card and some of my crafting musings for the week!
I have a question to ask along with this post: do you have a "style" to your cardmaking?  Or even, do you think you necessarily need to have a "style"?  There is so much I enjoy about this craft and one of the main thinks is the diversity and exploration it brings to my crafting.  It's for this reason that I don't think I have a distinct style.......and that's ok.  I think too many crafters put themselves under pressure to have a defined 'style' when it can actually limit your enjoyment of your crafting (and audience).
I guess I just wanted to encourage all you fellow eclectic crafters out there to keep doing 'you'!  Because, I too, like to try lots of different techniques and styles with my cardmaking (the only downside I can see so far is that I do want to try everything so budgeting is more difficult! hehe).
Anyway, enough musing - to my card!
I used the Double Stitched Window Cover Panel to cut a frame and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel. I adhered this to a white cardbase. I stamped my images with InkOn3 blackout ink and coloured them with Copics:
RV55, RV14, RV23
BG49, BG23, BG11
YG25, YG06
I added details with a white Gelly Roll Pen.
I die cut the images with the corresponding die and positioned them around the frame - to see where to stamp the sentiment (from The Most Beauty) which I also stamped in the blackout ink. I adhered the flowers with 3D foam. Pretty, Pretty, Pretty!
Thanks for stopping by!
