Another Good Friends Card
When I was making the card for the JustRite challenge a few days ago, I stamped and colored the medallion twice. Once with gold embossing powder, and once with white so I could decide which I liked better on that card. I do that frequently while making cards, and then I put the unused stamped piece into a drawer. Today I was going through the drawer, and decided to make a card using this motif, since it's one of my favorite stamps. I also love using this pale gold Core'dinations Pearls CS shaded with pink. Next time, I think I will try shading it with either green or blue, since everyone except Jill is probably getting tired of all my pink cards lately. (Although I actually do have two more pink cards waiting to be posted at some time).
Anyway, this time I cut another Noor! die out of the same Core'dinations pearl CS, as well as a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight, one of Spellbinders Labels Eight, a mat of the pearl paper, one of gold mirror card, and a card made out of the pearl paper.
Then, I kept layering them and deciding where to shade the paper, where to use a gold stamp pad to stencil the pieces, and where to outline with a gold pen.
When I was satisfied, I put them all together, some dimensionally and some flat against the backgrounds, and added some pink and gold pearls.
I wish the pearlescent sheen of these cards showed up better in the photographs, because it looks really pretty in person.
