This card I used the "faux metal" technique with the fun flowers stamp. My base card is bashful blue and I stamped the background using the fun flowers with versamark,I start off the edge of one corner on the diagonal. It is a great way to do background stamping, as your eye is drawn away from looking for the straight image, so it doesn't matter if you are off a bit.
Stamps: Fun flowers, Elegant thank you
Ink: Versamark, riding hood red
paper: bashful blue, more mustard, riding hood red
Accessories: embossing powder, scallop square punch, spiral punch
My next card was an ESAD-SU sketch challenge.
I used baja breeze for the base card Attach the piece of Ski Slope dsp to whisper white and adhere to front of card.. Using the butterfly from Great Friend, stamp using pacific point onto whisper white. Now using the leaf stamp use the stamp off technique - again using the pacific point, stamping around the edge of the butterfly. Mount onto pink pirouette and pacific point. Attach this layer to front of card. Stamp a greeting from the "oval all" set, onto pink pirouette, punch out using large scallop oval and layer onto wide oval pacific point. Attach to front of card.
Hi, thought I might post the cards that I did for my mini catalogue launch. This first card is using Gallery - I stamped on Pacific Point using the whisper white craft ink. I then stamped the images from circle circus using pacific point, taken with teal, tempting turquoise and baja breeze onto whisper white. I punched out using 1 1/4 inch circle punch and mounted those on the centre of the Gallery image. I then filled in the spaces with the small flower using whisper white ink. Then with the smallest stamp I stamped using pacific point to create interesting appeal. I then mounted onto whisper white base card.
