Another entry for the 3rd Anniversary Celebrations. Please see my previous post for all the exciting celebration activities!
I used the challenge photo for my inspiration. I love the purple tone of the wooden boardwalk and the soft glow of the lanterns .... reminds me of a warm, summer evening at the lake!
I embossed SU Elegant Eggplant with a wood grain embossing folder, cut narrow strips and adhered to the card front to mimic the boardwalk.
I wanted to give my "lanterns" a 3D look so I curled/curved the 'paper prior to adhering to the card. Quite a nice effect in real life! My attempts at creating a candle glow were quite unsuccessful....pretty much looked like the whole thing was on fire! The above was plan B.
