Hello all! A tone on tone High/low technique background on today's card. I started with an aqua piece of card and covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet. I used the Tiles mask on this background. I peeled the backing paper off and then inked the mask with a clear Perfect Medium, which keeps it from sticking to the mask too strongly. Placing the mask with the inked side down to the sticky sheet. I coated it with Diamond Snow. I peeled the mask up, exposing the remaining adhesive and then I coated it with clear micro beads, burnishing them down well. I wrapped a piece of white seam binding from corner to corner and added a messy bow with a crystal sparkler and a Bakers Twine bow. For the focal element, I cut the Lisbon in white card and backed it with a white backing. On top of that I added the Porto die cut out of white card then backed with aqua card. The Canadian tag cut in white was added next and I used the oval from the tag to cut out my stamped sentiment. I added flatback white pearls to the corners and areas on the dies as embellishments. I also added two matching stick pins to embellish the bow. The card was finished with a white pierced mat, a thin aqua mat layer and then a wider white mat to finish. The finished dimensions are 7" x 7" in size.
