Hello again. I have a card to share with you today which took a little bit more planning than I thought it would:
The flower is Altenew ‘Floral Fantasy‘ – quite a large floral image – and stamped using three of he Altenew pink inks. I used a light grey for the solid leaves.
The sentiment is from Mama Elephant ‘Hilly Hello‘ and die cut as you see.
The planning part of it was the die cut sentiment – I did the first die cut and then looked around for papers I had which matched the pinks, but as I didn’t have any, I made my own background by stamping the solid leaves from the stamp set in the lightest of the pinks I used for the flower, with the added smaller star shape from Altenew ‘Build a Flower Daffodil‘ as I had a few white areas I wanted to fill-in.
I was going to just layer the background, but decided to ‘inlay’ the two layers together, as I knew the flower and leaves would have some dimension using my 3D glue. I didn’t want too much height on the card.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
