Bright Blossoms - Darkroom Door

Darkroom Door has released many gorgeous new products this past week.  The 'Bright Blossoms' Collection is stunning and I've had a lovely time playing with some of the 'Bright Blossoms' paper products to create these two ATC's.

The images are beautiful and I decided to keep the composition of each ATC quite simple, so as to enhance the floral images from 'Bright Blossoms Montage'.  

I sprayed the white textured card with Glimmer Mist (Jingle Bells).  When dry I added a thick layer of gesso around the edge of the ATC and did the same with the floral image.  I also swiped gesso randomly on both pieces.

I layered glassine paper (painted randomly with gesso), vintage lace and a section of 'Bright Blossoms' wordstrip onto the ATC.  I stitched each end of the wordstrip in place and then sewed a pearl button to complete the ATC.

When making this second ATC, I sprayed white textured card with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist (Astrids), added a little Versa Magic ink (Pretty Petunia) to add depth of colour and then dabbed a small amount of gesso onto it.  I also swiped gesso around the edge of floral image and set aside to dry.

I layered the floral image, a section of 'Bright Blossoms' wordstrip and glassine paper (painted randomly with gesso).  Finally I stitched lace and pearl button to complete the ATC.
