Well, I have to say I had a wonderful weekend. My Saturday classes were great and I loved stamping with my Pinkstampagne Peeps! One of these times I will remember to take a pic or two to share. Lol! The weather was beautiful and sunny (55 degrees).
I know……the color combination for this Lotus Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set is way outside my usual comfort zone, but I challenged myself to “make it work”. I am very happy with the result, I’d love to hear what you think? The base for this card is Sahara Sand and the face square is one of the newest In Colors Mossy Meadow stamped with the Hardwood Background Stamp in the same Mossy Meadow Ink. This tone-on-tone effect is a great technique to add visual texture. The strip is Pistachio Pudding, this is one of the 2013-15 In Colors that will be retiring in a few short months (so sad!), which I spritzed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. (TIP: I wanted a smooth shimmer so I transferred the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to a bottle that “spritzes” more evenly.) I stamped the stem from the Lotus Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow, and the flower in Baked Brown Sugar and Early Espresso. The flower was fussy cut with my Paper Snips and adhered to the Pistachio Pudding strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I was trying different ribbons and then thought “Ooh, I bet Linen Thread would be perfect” and I think it is the perfect touch, how about you? The sentiment is also from the Lotus Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set stamped in Mossy Meadow, punched with the Extra Large Oval and popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Isn’t the lotus blossom gorgeous, the three step stamping gives it some really nice depth and it’s so easy to do to!
