Here is a bright and sunny card:
These flowers really are a playful stamping. The outline is quite thick – which I like – and the base and detail layer are quite unusual – they don’t fit neatly into the black outline. No – I didn’t do it wrong – I followed the guide, was a little sceptical – then took the matching dies………and they don’t follow the black outline either.
I must admit, I was wondering what I had done wrong…….but the dies actually match the base stamping layer, not the outline. I am assuming that is the playful part of the stamp name – and the fact the stamps are very solid for each layer.
Or maybe it’s playful because it almost makes you think you did something wrong – then hey – surprise! You actually did it right all along………………
The three coloured strips are ink pad direct to card to match the colours of the flower, and die cut with a wavy border. I didn’t want straight lines as the flowers are quite fun and playful – the lines ought to be too…….
The colours for this card was inspired from the current challenge at Addicted To Stamps and More, and the sketch layout is from the current challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.
