Morning â€¦. its a lovely sunny day here in Sydney and theyâ€™ve forecast a lovely 30Â° Celsius (86Â°F) so looks like we will be getting a little bit of summer here today!
Hereâ€™s a card that I created last week for my Auntâ€™s Stamp A Stack which was inspired by one of Vanessaâ€™s blog cards she demonstrated at the recent Papercrafts Show in Sydney. Vanessa is a lovely lady and part of my Stamp A Latte team.
This is a lovely quick and easy card.
It uses the lovely Soft Summer set from the Spring Mini Catalogue. Iâ€™ve stamped the solid Dogwood flower on the bashful blue layer in Versamark just to give it a watermark effect and to take away the â€˜plainâ€™ look. The sentiment is stamped in Ballet Blue
The flower on the whisper white is stamped in Jet Black Stazon â€“ I used Stazon so I could watercolour the leaves and flowers.Â The actual flowers are layered as I stamped them again on another piece of Whisper White and coloured them then cut them out. This way you can curl the edges of the petals just a little and therefore give the card a little more dimension or depth. Iâ€™ve also daubered around the edge of the whisper white piece to soften the edges.
I have used the 5/8â€ Brocade Blue ribbon to finish the card off and I think its turned out quite elegant and I hope you like it too!
