The Card Concept Challenge 75 - Boldly Graphic

 The theme for this week's challenge, at The Card Concept, is 'Boldly Graphic'. I love the black and white graphic print teamed with the beige, pink and dark wood. The diffused light from behind, the crystals and the mirror all add a translucent quality to the scene. I am so sure you will be inspired to make a card for our gallery :-D

This week's Mixed Media card really developed from the pattern on the chairs. To represent it I chose a chevron pattern embossed with white Hero Arts powder. I then sponged it with Distress Ink - Black Soot grading it from dark to light.
The mirror was introduced using mirror board and a decorative die from Spellbinders.
The flower is from the Clearly Besotted 'You are' stamp set. I stamped it with black Versafine then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I watercoloured the petals using watercolour paints.
The black leaves are  from Simply Graphic 'Openwork Foliage' 
The white leaves are a die from Verve's 'Beautiful Things'.
The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp set. I created a cut file for the stamp using the Silhouette machine.

You've got all the pretty elements in your card. A little bit of shine, a pop of pink - it's combined so beautifully!
