Pocket Full of Posies

Today’s project captures the essence of the large resist background in a coordinating medallion.

While the two flower designs do not match exactly, there is the illusion that the medallion is a smaller, colored snapshot of the larger pattern.

The bottom portion of the card is a pocket of white cardstock stamped with Posies in VersaMark Watermark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  Nautical Blue and Cantaloupe Memento inks were applied with sponge daubers over the embossed design.  A damp tissue was used to “buff” away the ink from the embossed areas revealing the resist pattern.

The sliding portion was cut from Summer Sun cardstock and scored to create an overhanging tab.  The tab was then trimmed with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two.  The background from Warm Wishes was stamped in Tangelo Memento and highlights were added with the same color.

The medallion is two scalloped circles die cut from white cardstock.  One is the base which was stamped with the circular flower image from Wishes with Majestic Blue VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder.  The flowers were then colored with Memento markers.  The second scalloped circle was die cut with a smaller standard circle to create a small window.  After distressing with Nautical Blue Memento it was elevated on top of the first piece with dimensional foam. 

Small pearls and a tiny ribbon accent the completed piece.

Wishing you a colorful weekend,
