Avery Elle

I just discovered the Avery Elle blog - don't know why it did not come across it any sooner....Too much available on the internet, I guess. Thankfully my husband also has a time consuming hobby and we usually spend our time together in our "cardroom" - he plays with his and I play with mine.... So he doesn't mind and I don't mind and I always have him around to ask for his opinion, although I don't always follow his suggestions.....


                                                         



So back to the card......above is the inspiration picture. The first thing that came to my mind was glitter. The rain in the water - it just glitters. And then I needed to incorporate the dock somehow, which I solved with the Papertrey Woodgrain embossing plate. This picture is all about straight lines. So I glittered up some Scor tape, glittered up the little flowers on the Avery Elle digi stamp and placed Memory Box pearls in the center. The sentiment is mounted on foam cushions.


Here are some close-ups - it is so hard to photograph glitter. It looks so pretty in real life....

I used the flash on this one, but then the wood grain dos not show well.


Too bad I don't have any Avery Elle stamps  - I think that needs to CHANGE!

Ha, ich bin noch da und werde auch gleich meine Meinung dazu abgeben, damit du mir nicht schon wieder so schnell davon läufst! lol

Grandios diese Karte und super umgesetzt! Der Hintergrund erinnert an die Wellen, (die Holzmaserung passt dafür ganz toll), und das Glitzerpapier an den Meerschaum! Die Farben hast du sehr treffend ausgewählt!!

LG und Gute Nacht
