Friends, I don't often JUMP on a new release the hour OF...but the Geode Layers dies and Agate stamp set were irresistible to me.
I literally had my hubby pause our tv show so I could order it once it hit the buy time.
stamps: Papertrey Ink Text and Texture: Agate/Garden Party dies: Papertrey Ink Geode Layers/Garden Party other: Zig Emboss Writer, Royal Langnickel Watercolor Artist Colors
When I saw the team's release samples...I couldn't get the chunky gold glitter outta my mind...
incorporated so much depth and texture to her samples and
picked up what clicked in my mind too (when she combined them with florals).
The Geode Layers are free form shapes that can be used for any type of card, just like deckled and brushed dies.
They will never leave my craft table~just sayin!
As for my card...
the following Blog Hop's pic drew my eye to the gilded trimmed cups and colors...
There were all sorts of shenanigans to achieve this 3D card!
I watercolored and pressed a saturated watercolored panel to another paper (innermost section of the "rock") for my blues.
I zig pen embossed the outermost layer with gold powder and added an acetate level under that.
On the next inner layer I glued chunky glitter.
I even popped up the outermost layer on foam squares.
Some flowers are in the rock...some are out (as well as the sentiments)...it was fun to just PLAY, you know?
I even fussy cut the "rocks" sentiment and added zig embossed gold lines to add even more gold.
I finally stopped so I could post it.
Thanks for stopping by~
