3D Thursday

Lovely Lilac Embellishement card

Happy Thursday everyone! :) Fairy Knoll is sponsering a 3D embellishment challenge over at Crafter's Digital Art Center. The challenge is to use your image as your main embellishment using dimension. Lovely Lilac will be offered for free to everyone who wants to participate in this challenge.

I have to tell you that this card was so fun for me to make. Things were just clicking! So often it feels like I put on my creative blinders and just sort of stumble about slapping things together. Even if it isn't quite right, it is good enough. That phrase is sort of evil to me... "Good Enough"..... if you are going to do something shouldn't be the best that you can do? I think so! Hopefully I am out of the Good Enough mire for awhile! :) Sorry for the off the subject rant!

The papers used for this card are from MME & Basic Grey. The layer behind the fairy (Lovely Lilac) was embossed with the Cuttlebug and a green ink pad was ran over the raised embossing to add depth. The flourish background is from the Fleur De Lis Spellbinder die cut. I simply cut it out, then cut it in half and attached the 2 halves to the back of my layered image. Then everything was popped up and attached to the card. Liquid Glass is the sheen seen on the leaves and the die cut.
Hopefully you enjoyed today's card! Have a great one! Smiles ~ Brandi
