Hi everyone. I was able to craft a little more yesterday, and was inspired by several challenges.
I started by stamping all three flowers and all the leaves from W Plus 9 ‘Petunia Builder’ using Altenew inks for the flowers, and Catherine Pooler inks for the leaves. I like the way the leaves turned out – using Lime Rickey and and Grass Skirt. These two colours may well be a combination I will use in the future.
Once I had used the latching dies, I then tried to come up with a layout I liked. I play doing this for quite a while usually, but it is something I enjoy – particularly when I have stamped and cut many images.
The square I placed the flowers on is embossed with a Tattered Lace embossing folder, to add some interest to the background. I started by using 3D glue for the flowers, then inserting the leaves underneath using a wet glue.
The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black onyx and adhered flat to the card.
I shall be entering into the following challenges:
