Have you seen the new release set called Old Well from Sparkle N Sprinkle? It features this wonderful image of an old brick well surrounded by greenery and flowers. I love how it looks and decided to use it for today’s card.
I wanted to give it a lighter look so after I heat embossed it with White Detail EP on craft cardstock, I used colored pencils to add color. This way I could still let some of the kraft color show through the image. I did a little blending but let most of the coloring lines show to give it a bit more texture.
After coloring, I die cut it with Spellbinders’ Label Eight. Then I used the Distressed Embossing Powder Technique to add Chocolate Sparkle EP around the edges. This was popped up with dimensionals on a purple layer die cut with Spellbinders’ Decorative Labels Eight and added to the white card base.
The sentiment was stamped with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and die cut with a pennant die from Spellbinders’ Nested Lacey Pennants. I cut it shorter on one side and used a corner rounder. This was popped up with dimensionals. I stamped part of the main image a second time and fussy cut a few of the flowers to layer over the sentiment.
To add a little more sparkle, I used a glue pen to add Purple Rain Velvet Glitter to the florals sections of the purple die cut in the background, along with small purple jewels.
