The challenge was to peruse Maile's blog and choose a card to interpret as my own. I have always admired Maile's sense of color and use of white space. She makes this look so simple, yet her designs are well thought out and stunning! Here is the card I chose to base my project on:
And this is my project:
I used the same older PTI set, Mehndi Medallion, and a newer set that I associate with Maile, Wet Paint (and dies). I used Versamark Ink and Powdered pearls for the main images, then die cut Wet Paint dies, stacking and gluing together several die cuts for strength. I also white heat-embossed two of the cards with additional sentiment from Wet Paint stamp set. All card stock is Papertrey Ink.
While I was at it, I decided to reproduce this card using my new MISTI from My Sweet Petunia, which arrived in the mail yesterday. This is my first project using this wonderful tool. It actually was a breeze to reproduce this card - three was as easy as one! (Sorry - I used turquoise pearls on the top medallion which did not photograph well.)
