In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at my brand new card. This time I chose to have the first flip lower than the second flip. It's an easy choice. You can do it either way just by choosing one side of the die-cut cardstock or the other.
For this card, I chose that gorgeous Watercolour Wonder Designer Series Paper featured in the Occasions Catalogue. The primary colours in the piece I decided to use are Whisper White, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango. For my base cardstock, therefore, I used some Crushed Curry. For further layers I used some Tangerine Tango cardstock and also some Watercolour Paper which I brushed over with a wash of Crushed Curry. I also used some of that wonderful Modern Medley Designer Series Paper. Of course, since it has a Very Vanilla base, I had to do some sponging with the Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango inks to make it fit in better.
For the little flowers which I cut out using the Petite Petals punch, I decided to use a piece of coffee filter. I tried our Creped Filter paper first but it was simply too fragile for the look for which I was aiming. I used Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango re-inkers and alcohol for the little flowers and finally dabbed some dots into the centres with my matching markers.
