I've really been enjoying this set "Eastern Blooms" from the Summer Mini.
I really love the possibilities that Bold stamp images have. You can make the same bold flower look so different, depending on what technique you use to stamp it. Here I inked the flower in Regal Rose ink, and then drew straight onto the stamp with a Rose Red marker, and then stamped it on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out. The colour inspiration came straight from this gorgeous patterned paper. It's "Bali Breeze" from the Summer Mini. I've also used a 'tab' of Regal Rose Wide Double-stitched ribbon (also from the mini) and Chunky glitter on the flower centre from (you guessed it) - the mini! I wanted to balance the strong pinks and reds with crisp white, but now I think there's too much white on there...what do you think?

Luv this card Marelle, especially the flower! Thank you for always explaining the hows, of your cards for beginners like me...ie: the technique of using markers straight to rubber after stamping in a lighter colour. Great effect, looks Fantastic! Thanks & Luv,ReplyDelete
