Persian Motifs: Blue & Black


I couldn't resist creating one more card before current Altenew challenge closes. I have been working with black cardstock for last few days and I had one more idea to create a card that matched with the challenge.

Here is the card.

I wanted to try Martha Stewart all-over-the-page punch for creating filigree like look. I punched out two columns and attached the back cardstock over a shimmer cardstock with foam tape and a foam sheet. On a vellum piece, I stamped Altenew's Persian Motifs, white embossed and colored them with Spectrum Noir Alcohol inks- GG1, IB3, BT6, CG3 and OR2. I added the sentiment in white embossing and attached pearls for added interest.

I loved the punched out panel, I am going to use that punch more often now.

Let me know how it turned out.
