I have managed to play in my craft room today – trying to ignore all the battering winds and rain.
I’m currently loving using Pinkfresh Studios sets – the stamp, stencils, and die sets are so much fun to use. I decided to use a new set to me to create this card:
I started by stamping the image, then used the layering stencils to colour. Even though there are three layers for the flowers, I only used two Distress Oxide colours – but the lightest one I used for two of the layers so it appears darker on the second layer, then a dark blue for the third layer.
I decided I wanted the leaves brown, so I used Vintage Photo (I think!) again for both the layers, so the second layer gives a darker tone.
I then die cut the branch and turned to the card base.
The embossed layer is using a Simon Says Stamp 3D embossing folder, and cut down to smaller than the card base, and adhered using 3D foam.
I then stuck down the branch with some smaller pieces of 3D foam, stamped the sentiment and did the same.
For the colours at Color Throwdown I had to use a darker green, so after thinking about more leaves, stamping the sentiment in green (I really didn’t like that idea) or Nuvo drops, I actually found these green gems in my stash, and placed them as you see – 3 larger and 3 smaller.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – light blue, dark blue, forest green, brown
Can You Handle The Pressure – embossing folder – option to use pink (not taken)
Allsorts Challenge – I love……? (layering stencils currently!)
Creative Fingers Challenge – anything goes
