Wildflower Meadow

I had to create a Birthday Card for my Sharon – my brother’s partner, last month so I pulled out the lovely & now slightly 005aa-blogaddictive “Wildflower Meadow” Stamp.  I had my Colour Coach still sitting on my desk from a previous project & went for a colour I don’t usually play with – Island Indigo.  I then decided that I was going to do a bit of a monochromatic look & bring in Pool Party but with a lot of Whisper White.  As I’ve been doing a lot of Heat Embossing, I decided to continue with it & pulled out my Pool Party Embossing Powder.

Once I had completed my Embossing, I found Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon that I have left over & decided to use it on the card.  I then tied a small Bow & adhered to the top with a Glue Dot.  Looking at it, I opted to leave off a greeting & go with what was in front of me.  002n-b;pgSometimes it is better to have a blank card as you can then use it for all occasions.

To finish the card, I coloured a few Pearls with my Blendabilites until I got a colour that was close to Island Indigio & adhered them to the centre of the flowers.

I liked the card so much that I created another & a matching Notebook.

I’ve had to create a couple of Birthday Cards for the coming weeks & went straight to Mary-Jo’s Monday Challenge which is ScreenHunter_237 Feb_ 01 17_35perfect for what I had in mind.

I’ve been playing again & had  the gorgeous Wildflower Meadow Background Stamp & matching Embossing Folder sitting on my desk – will show you those at a later date.  When I saw the open space on the sketch, I immediately grabbed this stamp.  It doesn’t matter how you seem to use this Background Stamp, it always comes up looking beautiful.  I’m really happy with my card, so I only hope the receiver is too.

Thanks Mary-Jo for yet another wonderful challenge!

004-blogTo create my card I went straight for my Subtles Markers & my Colour Coach.  I wanted to spritz the stamp prior to stamping as I thought it would give it a much softer look.  After inking the image with Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral, So Saffron & Wisteria Wonder, I spritzed it to give it a much softer look & stamped direct onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  If you haven’t tried stamping & spritzing, give it a go.  You will surely love the softer look it gives your card.
