Explore Card Creating with Patricia Basson

Hello dear friends

Today I have two cards created with Couture Creations  products that I would love to share with you...

For this funky card I used a sheet of Black and Pink Cardstock from Color Core Core'dinations. I layered two sheets and embossed the top layer using the uber cool Great Fubu embossing folder from The Marriot Collection. The pink paper is from the Damask Delight paper pad.

After sanding the raised embossed areas, I used several colours of Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue to the images...the colours I used are, Aztec Gold, Green, Hot Pink, Lilac and Purple.

This Dragonfly is proving difficult to photograph! I did layer two black solids and the one pink Die-cut, and also have some Crystalina Glitter Glue on it. It is placed on top of a Victorian Square Nestling Die together with the word Explore...Both the Dragonfly and word are from The Van Roe Collection.

I used my Couture creation sanding block to expose the pink colour core of the paper.

This next card is a little more elegant...

I embossed two strips of paper using the Chain Wire folder from The Marriot Collection and placed it with a piece of lace at the top and bottom of my card.

I also embossed a piece of whitewashed Core'dinations paper with the Large Only Me folder, also from The Marriot collection and also sanded it with the sanding block.

For my focal point I layered two Oval Nesting Dies with a Royal Oval Die on top. To add some interest I also layered a piece of the Quick Release Die paper between the layers.

I adged the Royal Oval Die with crackle paint and brown ink.

Thank you for visiting

FABULOUS cards Patricia!!!
I really LOVE the colours & techniques you have used on "explore", the distressing, tearing & inking of the double PP layers looks awesome too!!!
