I was so looking forward to using this new stamp set after I was inspired by some projects created by Shelli Gardner - and I'm not disappointed with my result! I've used the inspiration from the card in the challenge at GDP this week - and you can see all the amazing projects the design team have made in response to this lovely card when you click on the image.
I've used the floral image, linen thread, and collage stamping for my inspiration - and then I got a bit carried away and used the new Burlap Ribbon and the Very Vanilla Lace Trim as well!!
I've also used the lovely Gold Wink of Stella brush to highlight the flower, add a few splatters, and colour the wonderful dragonfly.
So, my creation has turned into having a life of its own!! What do you think? I love the way inspiration can go in all sorts of directions!!!
I love this card! You did a wonderful job. What colors did yoy use for this?ReplyDelete
I've used Peekaboo Peach, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake for the splatters. THe flower head has also been stamped with some So Saffron over the top of the Peekaboo Peach. Glad you like it!!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I follow your blog and love your work. Thank you for getting back to me.ReplyDelete
Did you use Whisper white for the base and Very Vanilla for the card front?ReplyDelete
Julia, the Peach works perfectly with the rest of your chosen colours. I had to look twice at that stamp set too. It's gorgeous, just like your card! Thank you so much for joining us at Global Design Project as we CASE Shawn this week.ReplyDelete
A lovely and beautiful 'artsy' card Julia. I love all the textured elements and colours you have used. Thanks so much for sharing it and playing along to the Global Design Project this week. xoReplyDelete
Yes I have used very vanilla for the stamping. I really love the vintagey feel of the vanilla for collage stamping! And yes I did use our fabulous thick white card stock for the base. It's really great for stability and a great finish to the card. And Thankyou for your lovely kind words. It's exciting to know I have a follower! Happy stamping!ReplyDelete
A perfect card for someone retiring and who will have more time to stop and smell the flowers, well done xxReplyDelete
