Share What You Love - Take 2

Hello, Crafters.

One of the first jobs I did yesterday when I went into my studio, was 
to see if I could take  the top two layers off the card base of 
yesterday's card. You may remember that I'd said that I'd 
made a big mistake by adhering the layers using Tear & Tape. 

It was a mistake because I'd wrapped some of the new 
Nature's Twine around the layers four times. It was so thick I 
should have adhered the layers to the card front using Dimensionals 
- unfortunately, I'd used double-sided tape!
The good news is that I was able to pull the layers off, as long as I 
pulled very gently; and then I used Dimensionals to 
re-adhere to the card base! Today's card is very similar to yesterday's
 card, with a change of colour - I went for Grapefruit Grove and 
Basic Black as my colour combo. 

Orange is normally my least  favourite colour, but this kind of 
orange is what I call a milky orange, it's softer and I quite like it! The script 
design Designer Series Paper (DSP), as well as the design I 
fussy cut the flowers from, are both from the Share What You Love DSP. 
I stamped the leaves onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock 
(CS) using Tranquil Tide Ink. To soften the background, I used 
the middle size "splodge" stamp from the Love What You Do Stamp Set, 
stamped off once with Mint Macaroon Ink and then I stamped 
over the leaves. 

I used this same technique with the sentiment background, too. I stamped
 the sentiment, which is from the same stamp set, using Stazon
 Jet Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS. To soften the
 look, I stamped over the sentiment with the largest splodge stamp, 
stamped off once using the Grapefruit Grove Ink.
When I wrapped some Nature's Twine around the top two layers, 
it was foremost in my mind to adhere it to the card base using 
Dimensionals! The good thing about the mistake I made 
yesterday is that it's the kind of mistake I don't make twice! 
I used one of the new Pearlised Doilies behind the sentiment, and 
I put a Basic Black CS punched circle behind the doily so the holes 
would show through as black - I just wanted to see what effect 
this would give! I added some small black Faceted Dots to the
 fussy cut flowers, and three large ones top and bottom of the script DSP. 
I added a layer of Basic Black CS, topped with a layer of Whisper 
White CS, inside the card, and decorated the bottom right-hand
 corner with a left over fussy cut flower and three sets of leaves!
The Share What You Love DSP is absolutely gorgeous, and if I'm
 not careful, I'm going to fall into the trap of keep making the same 
card over and over again, just changing the design of the DSP! LOL!
 I hope you have a great weekend, and until tomorrow, happy crafting!
