Next, I worked on the oval portion of my card. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do, but then after I stamped my sentiment it sort of came to me to try and put ribbon all along the outside of my oval and wouldn't you know, it worked! I used some sticky strip tape and I placed it all along the back side of my oval and I gathered the ribbon so that it looked like it was ruffled and I went all along my oval.
After that was finished I stamped my sentiment (which is from a current set called Thoughts & Prayers). I decided to use my spritzer tool, which I hardly ever use...to spritz some blue on my oval. I used a technique called reverse masking to cover up my sentiment area. In other words, my oval layer was spritzed with bashful blue, while my sentiment area remained white- it looks really neat in person. I used a 1 3/4" circle punch for my mask.
I stamped and cut out a few more flowers and I placed them along the bottom portion of my oval. It's hard to see in my photo, but I did add some dazzling diamonds glitter on my roses. And to complete my card I decided to add a bow at the top of my oval.
This card is something a little different than I would normally have done, but I'm really happy with the results and so I hope you liked my card as well. Thanks for stopping by. I'll try to update my blog over the weekend because I have a baby card I made for another challenge.
