So many different directions to go! Choosing three across the bottom: flowers, pink and polka dots here's what I came up with:
These colors are so soft and pretty together aren't they? Believe it or not this is my first time inking up the Painted Petals stamp set and can see lots of potential with it! The leaves and stems were stamped in Wild Wasabi while the flowers were stamped in Blushing Bride. My accent stripes were stamped in So Saffron as were the row of polka dots on the base.
This card is really very simple but shows off the stamps in this set to a good advantage. I love the triple line stamp--what a great accent image! All it needed were a few pearl centers to dress it up a bit.
I used a few more of those grid lines on the inside--really like how easy it is to create a gingham look with the triple line image. Now, I have to admit that I feel as though I cheated just a bit....as I originally designed this card--with different colors--for my stamp club gals. I CASE'd myself! I thought you might like to see the original:
It's amazing how much the look and feel of the card is changed by the colors isn't it? Here, I used Smoky Slate, Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss. Aren't they pretty together?!
Maybe it's because of the darker colors but this one has a more dramatic feel, doesn't it? Experimenting with color is so much fun!
