This is my second card for the PTI March Blog Hop.
Nichole Heady challenged us to use sequins on a project this month. All the details can be found over at Capture the Moment and you still have time to join in the fun!
Do you find yourself going back and forth between color palettes, shades and intensities? After working with the soft pinks and doilies in the MME paper for my last card, I was drawn to these intense, saturated colors from an Authentique line.
This time the starting point was purple sequins adhered to the smallest shape in the Lovely Layers die set to create a flower center.
The flower is built out from the center (with the layers moved around and reorganized a few times) and a sentiment is created with PTI's Headline Alphabet and Wonderful Words dies.
OK, it is confession time - I had a problem with the unfinished look of the sequin flower. Just like I have a very hard time not threading button holes, I needed to find a way to cover the holes in the sequins.
These red gems from my stash fit with the other intense colors and nestled into the sequins nicely. Maybe next time I'll try a few French Knots.
I can't wait to check out what everyone else has created!
Thanks for stopping by,
