Tuesday Talk

There is the most wonderful card to CASE at Stamplorations this month, couldn't resist it!


Now while the central panel of text is right up my street, the all over background behind it is something way out of my comfort zone. But I loved the colours and decided to give it a go.

I started by die cutting a stitched square, dusting it with two ink colours and stamping the quote. Next I stamped the bold coloured flowerheads over the rest of the card and dusted each one with a splodge of the same colour.

Then I placed the quote square back into the aperture and stamped the second generation ink flowerheads all over. I do love this all over background, but you'll notice I had to mat it onto a plain white card base to get a little bit of a white space fix!

Stamps: Visible Image, thanks you set
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, mustard seed
Die: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables

Thanks so much for looking today, I appreciate you spending some time here.  And keep crafting!
