Vintage Silver Lustre

Hello  and Welcome!
I just joined paper Temptress family as one of many of their fabulous designers.  I created this card using some our fabulous card stock.

The sun is out and it's great to feel the warmth again!  
 That inspired me to create this card with the image Buds and Vases (GKD).  I just got my order of new paper from Paper Temptress and I had a blast going through it. I just wanted to look at it all day!
Card Base: Heavenly White 120# (Paper Temptress)
Focal image: Heavy weight  Neenah Solar White 110#
Mats: Jellybean Green  65#
Designer Paper : I created my own  by using Vintage Silver Lustre
Copic Alcohol Ink Refills (.too Inc)
Copic Opaque White Ink  (.too Inc.)
Large petite Oval Die (Spellbinder)
pt042114ccI colored my focal image on Neeah Solar White 110# using Copic Alcohol Ink.
I used the heavy weight card stock because I will watercolor my focal image background.
The stamp is Buds and Vases (GKD)
Flower: RV11, RV23, RV81, RV91, RV95.
Leaves and stem:  YG11, YG61, G20, G34, G28
Background: Watercolor wash added Copic Opaque Ink for interest.
For my designer paper, I started with this gorgeous card stock!
It is so gorgeous that one could use this all by itself!   Wowzer!
Vintage Silver Lustre
Look at those swirls!
I applied Copic Various Ink.
Any alcohol ink can be used! Use it sparingly, It spreads and blends beautifully.
The ink saturates the paper so you will need to protect your work surface.
I  cut a window in the designer paper.
I then applied my layer to the card stock  and cut a windows in my card base with a smaller nesting
Large Peitiet Oval Die.
This card would be pretty with embellishment but I didn't want to cover up the designer layer! LOL
