Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well. It’s been a few days since my last card posting, as I have been back at work this week, and kinda lost my mojo! Then – I opened my new Catherine Pooler ‘Stamp of Approval’ box – hey presto – mojo back!
I had a look through some challenge blogs, and came across a few I could merge together. The colour scheme is from Color Throwdown – red, yellow, green – and I also did some masking, which is the theme from the Tuesday Throwdown this week. I struggle with masking – let me know if you don’t and what the trick is – but I still keep trying, as I like the look of a single layer, and the stamps giving the impression of dimension.
For this card, I used a Stamp of Approval mask, taping some of it off, and used my blending tool with ‘Tiara’ ink – also from Catherine Pooler. This gave the leaf background panel. I then stamped the solid red flower in ‘Rockin’ Red’, masking it off to stamp the leaves in ‘Grass Skirt’.
I liked how this turned out, and found that the inks stayed true to their colours, despite stamping on top of the yellow.
The sentiment is a die cut from the same box, and the two smaller words stamped directly onto the card with Versafine black Onyx.
The used my wonky rectangles again – you just knew, didn’t you? – and layered onto a green card base.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – red, yellow, green
Tuesday Throwdown – masking
Watercooler Wednesday – anything goes
Addicted to Stamps and More – make your mark
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – anything goes
