Tole Four Panel

Hi all, the cold is better and I have been working on a couple of cards today.  This one is one of Tracey's digi images, both the panels and the flowers, called Bracket Borders.  I love how easy it is to work with digi images, they can be re-sized and colored to fit whatever your desire and design is.  I printed out the floral borders out on a good quality white card stock and then painted the design with mica paints.  These paints are a bit thicker and more opaque than my Twinkling H2O's and I love how they shimmer.  Next I printed out the pointy petal daisy in two sizes, that comes in this set, onto a heavy weight vellum.  They were painted with the same mica watercolor paints, shaped, layered and with a crystal center put into the center of the corresponding panel. 

The background DP is a rich gold metallic as well as the smaller Spellbinder Fleur de Lis pendant under the bow.  I cut out the larger pendant die in white card stock and interlocked the panels in it, popped the whole assembly up on foam dimensionals.  Lastly I added a white bow, Stickles glitter, and more crystals to finish it off.  The card is really shimmery with all that bling, but not overpowering. 

Be sure to check out Fred She Said and see the new releases, especially the colored version of the pansies! I'll be back later with the other card that I finished today.  Until then,


Comments are always welcome, I'd love to see your creations also!

Sonja, Love, love, love this card! It is a beautiful design and has lots of subtle bling - my favorite. May I ask the brand of the mica paint? I use a lot of Twinkling H2Os (and even have some Radiant Pearls left), but your coverage and vibrancy of color are excellent! is my email. Thanks for creating this beauty! Louise Fox P.S. I am also a Fred, She Said fan!
