I actually made this card before I went to bed last night. I could not decide if I liked it or not. I felt it needed something more. Truth be told....I wanted to add some black cs. I decided to sleep on it instead.
Finally...after looking at it most of the day, I decided to upload it as is. In the inspiration pic, I see neutrals, sage greens, and soft blues. In addtion, I saw the mantle mirror glass grid thingy...and instantly thought cb. With so much glass and light....and reflections....I thought lumiere. I love the pearlized sheen lumiere gives. I painted lumiere on bg vv and cb piece. I sponged edges and rocked and rolled. The linen thread was added to created another texture and color. I added the hardware b/c my eyes see dark colors sprinkled throughout the piece....as well as metals.
I added NO black cardstock....left it as is....of course, my background is very black.
Since lumiere is pretty to me and something I do not use often, I decided to let this card be part of the pretty challenge from Sharon's(notimetostamp)challenge. I also use my pretty dp and linen thread!!!
