Life has been a bit busy this past fortnight with workshops, card classes and stamp camp that I almost missed entering a card for the third Colour INKspiration challenge. On my way home on the train I was trying to think which stamp to use that would go well with the five colours – Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Suede and Whisper White. In my minds eye I was running through my stamps then I stopped at one I bought last year which has NEVER seen ink – how bad is that. What stamp set did I stop at?
Touches of Texture – you’re right. This was the perfect set to incorporate all five colours. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to get these stamps out of the case. The stem, bee and dragonfly are stamped in Soft Suede, the flower outline in Marina Mist, the solid flower in Soft Sky and the background and flower centre in Peekaboo Peach.
I used the Gold Wink of Stella to colour in the bee and dragonfly then applied the Fine Tip Glue pen to them for some dimension.
For the flower I used the Clear Wink of Stella and applied the glue just to the centre of the flower. The Fine Tip Glue pen is my new friend 🙂
I cut the Burlap Ribbon in half then adhered the sentiment (which is from Love & Affection) on top using dimensionals. The sentiment is cut out using the Stitched Framelits and Layering Oval Framelits – both these sets are a ‘must’ and are my most used framelits.
Well I’d better sign off and make my lunch for tomorrow then head to bed.
