My second two-card scraplift for 3flowers

Continuing the “double scraplift” theme at 3flowers (you can see the result of my first one here), today it was time to be inspired by two wonderful Spanish cardmakers, that I admire very much, Rocío Escalada and Yolanda Garrido. Here’s the result:

…and here are their beautiful creations:
Card made by Rocío from the blog Veo Veo Scrapeo.
Rocío’s card is pure perfection… I wouldn’t change a thing. I love the colour combination, the die-cut stain, the silver-coloured word and that special faux stiching.
Card made by Yolanda from the blog Scraping Time.
Yolanda’s card is so sweet and fun with those whales, the canvas texture and blue glitter washi tape… Phew, this scraplift was a true challenge! A good scraplift doesn’t copy the original project, but is inspired by it, maintaining certain features but changing others. Let’s see if I have done a good job…
A card with three colored embossing by Laura Dovalo.
To make something different with Rocíos card, I decided to stamp three overlapping stains (using a Kaiser craft stamp) with pigment ink and transparent embossing powder. Let’s take a closer look at the effect:

Even though the colours have not actually blended, you can see a bit of orange and green in the middle… that’s due to the fact that pigment inks are not completely opaque.
I cut the sentiment out of black cardstock using a die from La Pareja Creativa and covered it with Clear Wink of Stella and some Glossy Accents… Mmm, it looks like black liquorice ^_^
Now let’s hace a look at my second card, inspired by Yolanda’s precious creation:
A sweet card in white and mint by Laura Dovalo.
For this card I used stamps by My Favorite Things, both for the brick wall (I stamped it with Versamark ink, clear embossed it and coloured it with a Copic marker) as for the gnome and sentiment (from the fun “You gnome me” set). Like Yolanda, I also used a bit of canvas and glitter in my scraplift.

The gnome, coloured with Copic markers, looks so “fashionable”, doesn’t he? ^_^ The message of my card is that the he would do anything for a friend, even jump over a high brick wall.

I hope you liked my cards… in a couple of days I’ll be back with my next two scraplifts. Have a great weekend!
