Happy weekend everyone. Some crafting time for me this weekend. I have been getting some inky fingers with some water-colouring again.
I saw this stamp last week at the Doncaster craft show, and fell in love with it straight away. It is from Honey Doo Crafts, called ‘Forget Me Not‘. I can see these flowers are sometimes yellow, after I did a little Google search, but it didn’t really matter to me. I was following the colours inspired by the current Card Concept challenge, which is mainly red and yellow.
I stamped in Versafine black onyx and heat embossed with clear. I took several similar colours from my Zigs and started to colour. I wanted the centre of the envelope to be a little lighter, and the edges darker, so it looks like it is full and dimensional.
Three colours for the flowers, to try to add some dimension also, but these are little flowers…..I kept going anyway. I didn’t colour part of the image which is around the closure of the envelop, partly because I didn’t know what colour to use, and partly because I liked the detail in there.
To add more dimension, I added some light grey around the image, and just let everything dry. Once dry, I took a Catherine Pooler postage die to cut it out, and then thought about the background. I thought it need some red around the image, but not a solid red, so I turned to Altenew and stamped the ‘Wood Pallet background‘ stamp after I had inked it up using the same red colours I had coloured the envelope in. It took a couple of stampings – using my Misti – and I really like the effect this gave.
I didn’t want to cover the image up with a sentiment, so I cut a larger base card, and stamped the greeting using a set of MFT stamps which I always seem to turn to.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
The Card Concept – photo inspiration
Watercooler Challenges – anything feminine goes
Lil Red Wagon – flowers
Aud Sentiments Challenge – anything goes with a sentiment
