Daily Inspiration...Distressed Panel

Good Afternoon everyone!

Thanks for joining me today for some 'Daily Inspiration!' 

This is a card I made for my mum. She was having a cataract operation and being an hour and a half away from where they live, and working too I couldn't visit. So I decided I would make her a card to show I was thinking of her. 

I saw this card on Pinterest, and couldn't resist making my own version. I loved it so much, and I must admit that it came out pretty much like the original! 

I think this card design is perfect for lots of different occasions, just changing the sentiment, and maybe color scheme will suffice!

I created the panel by stamping the agapanthus head with white ink and embossed with white powder. Then I added Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks to the panel using my blending tool. I then spritzed the panel with Docrafts Artiste gold spritzing ink. Pearls from my stash and burnt gold sequins purchased from The Range were added. 

If Pinterest is anything to go by, I have really noticed that vellum is on a comeback with a vengeance, and I think it works great when used as a panel for greetings! 
I used a greeting stamp from my stash (I think it's Hero Arts), and stamped with Versamark. Then I dusted with gold lustre powder from the Mica Powder Set 1 from CleverCut. I secured this to the card by cutting into the spine of the card and folding around, then adding a piece of card to cover the workings!

I hope you enjoyed visiting today... I'll be back tomorrow with another card! x

Beautiful card Clare, very pretty yet simple and quick to make. Love the colours and the vellum panel just finishes the card perfectly.
