I had fun with today’s card! I love this stamp set and was determined on finding a way to make all these colors work with it. I was doing good until I realized that I couldn’t really find a good way to add Basic Gray. That’s when I decided to pull out my En Francais Back Ground Stamp and Ink it all up with Basic Gray. I then stamped that fabulous background on the So Saffron. It turned out PERFECT!!! That subtle background was exactly what I had hoped for.
I have wanted to play with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch since I bought it. So, I pulled it out and decided to take some Hemp Twine and thread it through the holes. I really didn’t know what I was going to do with it or where I was going to put it; however, I knew I liked it. I wanted to keep this card earthy and simple but I also wanted to add some dimension & texture. Braiding the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border was a great touch.
I stamped my image in StazOn Black because I knew that I would be watercoloring it. With that said, I am not using Watercolor Paper… Sometimes I enjoy watercoloring on Whisper White Card Stock. In order to get a beautiful colored image you need to take your time, control your level of water and color you apply. Works Great!
Now the greeting was stamped on a banner and popped up with Stampin Dimensionals. The funny thing is that’s not originally how it was supposed to look. I stamped it WAY CROOKED under the actual image and had to figure out a way to cover the Oops because I was not prepared to start over. Lol.
That’s pretty much it for today’s design. Before I go I do want to point out that fun yellow Jewel Rhinestone on the buggy. That is a clear Stampin Up Jewel Rhinestone that I colored with a Yellow Sharpie. Pretty Cool isn’t it?
