I got to complete a few more of the PTI World Card Making Day challenges...just one more to go -- maybe tonight!
I actually made up my 'India' card the other night, but am just getting a chance to post.
I think the thing that catches my eye most about Indian art & textiles are the right bright colors, and infusing it with a lot of gold and jewels.
So -- that is what I decided to do (however I've realized I need to get new gold EP -- mine is looking a bit dull these days!)
Here's my 'India' inspired card:
I started out using my Basic Backgrounds Retro set, and I randomly placed some raspberry jewels I had in my stash and used my (now tarnished) gold EP. I cut a piece of Gold CS with my Labels 8 Nesties, and stamped the sentiment and placed the raspberry heart...but it needed something more, so I stamped the flourish, and added some gold 'beads'. In retrospect, I would stamp the sentiment in a different color, as it looked nice while the ink was still wet, but a little too light once dry.
Then we move on to Mexico --
DH and I honeymooned there in 1999. We had a MAGNIFICENT time, and loved every minute of it.
I used the first PTI Anniversary set, Beyond Basics, to make my patterned paper, and the spritzed it with some so saffron and summer sun inks. I used some enchanted evening ribbon, and placed the sentiment on a die cut from the Labels 9 set. I went around the embossed border with my gold paint pen. I think this could qualify for the ever-elusive "Guy card" :).
Thanks for stopping by today -- hope you have a super day!!
