FM #53 & JAI #112 - More New Goodies :)

I decided to squeeze in another entry for this week's Friday Mashup, using the gorgeous colours from Just Add Ink's current challenge.  This is what I came up with:-

The Friday Mashup Challenge is for a fancy fold card, a row from the tic tac toe grid, or a mashup of both.  I've gone with the column on the left, using lace, pearls & flowers (you can see my previous entry here):-

& here are the JAI colours:-

I've gone really vintage with this one, with lots of sponging, 3D blooms & pearls.  The main panel has been stamped in Versamark & Choc Chip, then clear embossed.  I've coloured the blossom images with stamp pad ink & blender pens, & then added 3D blooms & pearls.  Both die cut layers & the banner have been layered on dimensionals.

I was really happy with the pink printed panel peeking out of the bottom of the card, which is stamped with the same image as the main panel & coloured with blender pens & ink.  (Gotta love the stampamajig!)  :)

Oh, WOW!! This is incredibly beautiful, Helen. You know I'm a huge fan of your creations - but this one may well be a favourite. I just love the delicate pink flowers, the stamping on the Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette panels, and the use of Crochet Trim. Utterly gorgeous. So glad you played along with us at JAI this week :)
