I had fun brayering the three "plain" patterns in the Irresistibly
Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).
It started because I
decided to make a video for tomorrow showing how I decorated one of the
floral designs in this set, and how I added my own decoration before
actually using it as a background.
combined my playtime with using more of my pre-die cut shapes in
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, which is something I've been trying to
do over the last couple of weeks.
For today's card I chose a pre cut
Bloomin Heart to create a wedding card.
I was brayering the various designs, using various ink colours, the
pleasure was equal which ever combination I used.
I didn't finish up
with a favourite because I feel they all have their own individual merits.
challenge was deciding how to use the background to its best advantage.
found the plain patterns fractionally more versatile because the design
didn't distract too much if it could be seen through the die cuts.
Having said that I did find it better to put a sheet of vellum behind
the die cut.
I didn't do this on the 60 diamond design card and I think
it would have looked better if I had.
I did put a layer of vellum behind
the die cut heart and that was it definitely a great improvement.
cut the heart-shaped vellum, I drew round the largest normal shaped
heart in the Sweet & Sassy Heart Dies with a pencil and then cut around it.
Mr & Mrs sentiment is from the That's the Tag Stamp Set, and has
been heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.
I tied the ribbon around
the top two layers of the card and then mounted it onto a Mint Macaroon
Cardstock (CS) base.
adhered a sheet of Whisper White CS inside the card and decorated it
with a small flower in the bottom right hand corner.
I used Mint
Macaroon Ink and the flowery stamp that's in the That's the Tag Stamp
That's it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
