As promised, I'm posting a project today, even though it's quite late in the day...really it's evening. Does this still count as keeping my promise? :) Today I was determined to spend my day off crafting and I think I did a pertty good job. I didn't do any laundry, wash the dishes or clean up the house. It was really hard to pull myself away from those chores and stamp instead ;) Ha!
This is one of the projects I came up with...
This stamp might look familiar to you. It was from a hostess set a couple of years ago. This year is SU!'s 25th anniversary and each month they're releasing one stamp set that has a collection of oldies, but goodies from the past. This was included in March's set which is all spring/flower images. I love this flower and am so glad they brought it back!
I inked up half the flower in Wisteria Wonder and with a blender pen, removed the ink that had gotten on the leaves. I then used a Pear Pizzazz marker to color the stem and leaves. I added a small strip of Calypso Coral scallop border at the top to give it a pop of color. One thing that I saw in a magazine was a main image layered on to another light neutral color. I think the original card I cased was actually white on white. It looked really cool because it gave it a little dimmension even though it was the same color. Anyways, I tried it on this card and I really like the way it turned out. The difference between the Very Vanilla and Whisper White is subtle, but it makes a difference. I'm definitely going to have to try this technique again!
That's all I have for tonight. Hope you have a great weekend!
