This is my last hurrah for the Flowering Fields 2016 Sale-a-Bration stamp set. It is one of the five designs my lovely stampers created in March’s Class. This set was still available when we made it in class, so I don’t feel as guilty posting it today. Lol!
BASE TEXTURE: Sometimes a card base can be left as is or stamp a little somethin’, somethin’, but in this case I felt like a bit of texture would fit the bill perfectly. The base is Mint Macaron dry embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The embossing was lightly sponged with Mint Macaron ink to bring out more of the embossed details and give a distressed feel.
PANEL TRIO: The trio of panels starts with Rich Razzleberry layered with Very Vanilla. I tried all the images from the Flowering Fields 2016 Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set and liked the clean and simplistic feel these images gave. After stamping the images onto Very Vanilla with Memento Tuxedo Black ink they were colored with Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss, and Crushed Curry. I went WAY outside my Type-A comfort zone and quickly as well as not-so-perfectly colored the images with a blender pen. Then they were popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add more height. [grin] To add that all important touch of sparkle the leaf stems and flowers were lightly brushed with Clear Wink of Stella. I love how the Wink of Stella gives a nice subtle bit of sparkle. [I had a hard time getting the sparkle to photograph, please take my word that it is lovely “in real life”.]
TYING IT TOGETHER: It really needed something to tie everything together. So, to finish and add a bit of texture I tied a leftover serged edge strip from a piece of Burlap Ribbon that I had cut away from a previous project. I love how this ties everything together and gives a finished look even though there is no sentiment. [pun intended….Lol!]
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and thank you for stopping by today! Have a great Monday!
