Aren't Oxides amazing on darker card - this looks great. I haven't made a gatefold card for a LONG time - I love the image being on one side, that was one of my personal favourite things to do. Looks great, Carol.

Beautiful gatefold card, Carol, with such rich colors! Your fussy cutting is fabulous! I am in love with the stencil! Question - did the overlapping flowers hold your gatefold closed? Or did you use some other method of keeping it closed for photographing? It's beautiful! (congrats on the GDT spot!) hugs, de

CaroleAnn said...

Exquisite!!! The flower just pops with that beautiful stencil background and I can see the dew drops!!!! Great job on this card.

Leslie Miller said...

A beautiful combination of stencil and stamping! Amazing the coverage you got on the black card stock. If I hadn't read I would have thought the background was die cut.

I am very impressed with the effect you have acheived with your oxide ink pad and your poppies look fabulous.

I’m surprised to see how well the DOx ink covers the black. I have some colors of DOx too, but clearly I haven’t been experimenting enough. The red flower is really eyecatching.

Lisa Lynn said...

WOW, this is stunning. Love the bright stamp image and the paper just makes it pop.

HilaryJane said...

You have created a wonderful effect with the oxide ink on a black card base and the vibrant red flowers are wonderful. I have never thought of using glossy accents to create rain drops Duh!! xx
