For today's card I used Simon Says Stamp's August Card kit along with the Folk Dance background die from the Friendly Frolic release.
I started out by stamping the circular floral image onto some Bristol Smooth paper with Simon Says Stamp intense black ink. I then colored the image in using my Arteza Real Brush Pens. For the circle frame I used Dolphin Gray and Elephant Gray. For the flower I used Rouge Pink. The leaves were coloring in with Turtle Green, Fresh Green, and Seafoam Green. Once the image was colored I fussy cut it out with scissors.
Next I used the Folk Dance background die on some white cardstock. I adhered some light gray cardstock to an A2 size card base and then glued the die cut panel onto the gray panel. Then I took the circular piece that I fussy cut out and popped it up on the card with some foam tape.
I used the Bubblegum Blush Nuvo crystal drops from the card kit to fill in some of the circles in the die cut background. The Nuvo drops that came in the kit were just a sample size and I found the bottle a little difficult to work with, but the end results were still beautiful.
To finish up the card I added some silver sequins to the background. I also colored in the flowers in the die cut background using my Wink of Stella glitter brush.
