I don’t know about you but I often have bits and pieces (stamped images, dies cuts etc) on my desk that have been left over from previous projects. I found some of those ‘bits’ under some papers so decided to make them into a card. I think I’d been playing around with colour combos and how the two parts of the leaves and flowers fitted together. I also found the leftover Scallop Rectangle from my last post.
The base for this card is Calypso Coral with a Pool Party mat and a Whisper White top layer. There are three layers to the flower and two for the leaves. This really helps in giving the images dimension. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.
The flower base is Calypso Coral with the overlay Poppy Parade. The leaves are a combination of Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. The colour arrangement for this flower is the opposite arrangement from my last post. When I started putting the card together I felt that a plain card base didn’t look right so I stamped the ‘field’ of flowers in VersaMark to give a subtle background.
I also found this insert on my desk which I’d made for another card and then decided not to use it. The image has been stamped in Memento black and coloured in using ink and Blender Pens. Have you noticed that the flower on this stem isn’t the one that is part of the actual stamp? I used the masking technique to create this ‘new’ image.
Well that’s all for now. Until next time …
