I've been itching to use this design from the Share What You
Love Designer Series Paper (DSP)! I love the Rich Razzleberry
and Crumb Cake colour combo! I used the triple flower stem as
my image to partner this DSP, because the image is a very
unfussy line art image.
I debated whether to colour the flower heads using the small background stamp, but I decided to use my Rich Razzlebery Marker Pen to colour them. Once I'd painted them I stamped over with the whole image using the large background stamp, using Crumb Cake Ink stamped off once.
I also decided to stamp the flowers twice and then I fussy cut them,
so I could adhere them on top of the original flowers using
Dimensionals. The reason I thought about this was that I wondered if
stamping all over with the background stamp with stamped off Crumb
Cake Ink, might distort the colour of the original flowers in the image.
As it happened, I needn't have been concerned as the Crumb
Cake was so light and my colouring with the Marker Pen was so
rich, there was no discernable affect. I chose the sentiment from the
Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set because it's so small; I didn't want a
sentiment that would over power the image.
I haven't decorated the inside of the card, but I'll finish
that off today. I added a medium-sized Basic Rhinestone at the
base of each flower, and a line of three under the sentiment.
I'm finding that the Suite that's on Early Release this year, is much
easier to work with than last year's Eastern Palace which I found
quite a challenge. I'll really loving this Share What You Love Suite
because I think it's so very versatile! I hope you're enjoying it too!
Untill tomorrow, happy crafting.
