I made a card earlier in the week but decided that it wasn't quite brave enough for this challenge, so I deleted my link and am back today with a new card ...
I went for a whimsical, almost "groovy" look and I really like how this card turned out. All of the flowers were embossed onto black cardstock with coloured Zing powders. I added a scallop frame and die cut word to finish things up.
My first card was very safe and stayed as far away from black as possible :) ...
I added a partial translucent embossing paste harlequin pattern to the background of the Doodlie-Do Copic coloured flowers. Some Glossy Accent highlights were also added to the florals. I think it's a pretty card (and I got to use that translucent embossing paste for the first time), but I much prefer the black one for this challenge. Thanks for the inspiration!
