For my floral project, I decided to make a farewell card for a work colleague who left in mid- January to pursue new interests. She collects Moorcroft pottery, and I thought this would be a perfect theme to inspire this month's project. Beautiful isn't it?
I actually live in Stoke-on-Trent, only about 10 minutes away from the factory.
Black card and paper
Rose Panel stencil
Versamark ink pad
Mica powders: Perfect Pearls Forever Green, and Cosmic Shimmer Blue Sky, Lapis Lavender, Lava Red and Raspberry Red
Decorative edge punch
First I used the stencil to emboss a piece of black card. This is the side I will be working on to imitate the tube lining which is so typical of Moorcroft pottery.
Once I took the stencil away, this was the result.
The finished panel fits onto a large DL card (that is A4 folded in half lengthways). I cut the first mat from glossy black card and used a punch to create a decorative edge on the two short sides.
I used the same edge punch on another two pieces of card, and used the Versamark and mica powder to match the main panel.
The artwork was then simply mounted onto a white card blank.
I hope you like the finished card. I look forward to seeing your ideas and artwork again this month. Till next time. Xxx
