Grace is now a design team member for Our Daily Bread Designs stamps. So well deserved! She issued a pocket card challenge and I haven't made a pocket card in such a long time. I've never made a criss cross pocket card so this was a good opportunity to try it out. I do not own any ODBD stamps so cannot enter their contest, but you should check out their web site to see the beautiful creations others have made!
My other friend, Kelly or schirmcat, issued her Word of the Week second challenge last Wednesday and it was the word 'impearl.' I don't know why it took me almost a week to make a card using pearls, but here it is! I painted twinkling H20s on the vellum leaves and I colored some white pearls with a copic marker to match my color theme because I needed them to be orange. The marker I used is actually apricot. The twinkling H20s don't really settle into or soak into the vellum, so they shimmer in spots, as though it rained the night before!
The stamp from Boho Backgrounds seemed to match the DP design pretty well. I stamped it in PTI Melon Berry, stamped it off first and then used it as a background for the sentiment, which is in PTI Avocado. The leaf swirl on the inside pocket insert is Inkadinkado in gold craft with gold EP. Thanks for looking.
