Amazing Asters

Hello friends...

Welcome to  another day of Designer Spotlight & Weekend Inspiration for IBS...
Today I am sharing a new card make with Flower Of The Month: Aster...

I love coloring but I am new to coloring with alcohol markers ...
Today I am sharing a card that uses alcohol markers...I will also share some helpful tips & tricks that I use to embellish my cards... 
So here is the card for today...



I have stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink  as it is water based ink & it won't bleed when you use alcohol markers...
I have used Spectrum Noir markers for coloring...
After coloring the image I fussy cut it...& framed it with a die cut in such a way that it looks like the flowers are coming out of the frame... 
I think it adds the dimension & 3D effect... so fun..
Since the flowers are so bright with a  black frame I thought it would pop up on a white background... But I didn't want the plain white background so I embossed it to add some texture & matted it with black cardstock...
I think the texture that embossing adds makes a big difference to the card without distracting from the focal point...
Then I added some black & white twine & a bow to the bottom...


I didn't have a matching card base color so I cheated & that's another trick that I use many times...  ;)
I took the same green marker that I used for the leaves & colored the border of my card base... Tadddaaa... I have a card base that perfectly matched my focal point...

The card at this point looked pretty good but for me it lacked something... BLING...
I love adding a bit of sparkle to my projects... & so I added 2 sizes of silver rhinestones in a triangle pattern on my card...
Now I was always confused how to does this triangle pattern work...
I did some research & now here is what  I understood... I make a big triangle with 3 small triangle... If you observe closely you will see I have one small triangle on the top right corner, one on the left below the small flower & one on the right near the twine with the 'i' from amazing frame as one of the triangle points... & when you join all the 3 triangles it forms a bigger triangle.. I hope I am making sense..  :P

As a last finishing touch I added a tiny ladybug (made with viva pearl pens) on the leaf.
