Swirly silhouettes

Hi there,

I got to play with a whole bunch of new aquistions on this card, punches, stamps, rub ons, which was great. I had been itching to get my Pocket Silhouettes inked up but hadn't had the chance till now so when I saw Kristina Werner's latest
colour challenge I decided to try them out. Firstly here are the colours she picked for this week's challenge.

Nice combo. And here's the card.

It was a bit tricky but I also managed to get a shot of the clear glaze on the flowers.

The starting point for this card was really to try a bunch of new stuff - punches in particular. I knew I wanted to have the image(s) in squares surrounded by scallops and then probably have a punched border below. The white SU Organdy ribbon (retired) I had was perfect to thread through the punched border slots and unexpectedly but rather nicely allowed the Rose Red to filter through from below. Swirly Rose red DSP seemed to balance and compliment the flower panels too. Finally to give the card a little bit of bling I went over all the little flower head dots with my clear Sakura glaze (aqualip) pen.
