Oh dear, it's raining here ... guess I'll just have to stay in and craft :)
Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday - whatever the weather!
This card is made using the first of the many prints taken off when trialing the Creative Palette on Wednesday and as you can see it is very light on ink, a mix of Fire and Limon inks - it was my first trial and I was nervous so was very sparing when applying the inks :) Also because it was my first attempt, I used a snippet of smooth white card to lift the print ... well, it could so easily have been a complete disaster!!!
I used a plastic fork and bubble wrap to add texture before lifting the print.
Making the card up was simple. I began by stamping the flower spray, flourish and sentiment - all from a couple of stamp sets by Dawn Bibby - with Archival black ink. The flowers are coloured using Memento Markers. Then I used the deep pink marker (Rose Bud) to draw an edge around the print ... a sort of faux matting! Finally, after adhering the print to the front of a white card base, I added a few pink dewdrops for embellishment. You'll find a list all the materials used at the end of this post.
I swear my cards are getting simpler!
I'm entering this card to the following two challenges:
That's Crafty Stamping Ground Challenge - the challenge for this one is to use stamps on your project.
and, of course, as the title to this post suggests:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 137 - the whole topper is the snippet!
Right! I'm off for a late lunch ... it's Sunday so everything is late today :)
