The other half

As promised, here's the other half of the scallop carousel note that I used yesterday. This time I've taken my colour inspiration from the Afternoon Tea papers. For the main image (from "Live Your Dream" stamp set in the Mini), I inked up the entire image in Soft Sky ink, and then carefully used the corner of my Wild Wasabi inkpad for the stem, and the corner of my Groovy Guava inkpad for the flower centre. I then stamped it on Whisper White cardstock, and without re-inking, stamped the image again just slightly to one side. this gives a 3D effect. I did it by eye, but you could use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to be more precise about the placement if you prefer. Instead of mounting this panel on Chocolate Chip cardstock, I used the Afternoon Tea paper - the lovely chocolate hessian-y piece. For the greeting, I stamped the word 'Thanks' (from "Live Your Dream" and punched it out using the scallop square punch. I then trimmed it down to make a little frame. You can see how HERE. Clever, hey? The rest is just some background stamping and more pretty Afternoon Tea papers.
