How about some goodness with my new Sweet Pea stamp from PaperTrey, Inc, a fabulous colour combo from Embellish Magazine and the Card Patterns sketch for this week?
All I needed to do was to take one look at this amazing color combo and I knew I wanted to play. In fact, that green, pink and brown are so yummy together, I would like to just keep making cards to go with it! (I forgot the challenge was to include a bird with the colors so I guess this one doesn't count but I like it anyway)
I loved the simple patterned paper look on the sketch and knew that I could create a similar look by just stamping an outline flower and not coloring it in. So, my sweet pea stamp was used to create the background by stamping it in a strong pink on white cardstock.
I stamped one spray of the sweet peas and cut that in a square, coloring in that portion with Copic markers. When I was done, I sprayed the entire piece with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist and I just wish you could see the great, subtle sparkle that gave my card.
Notice the embossed design in the card base. That is Core Impressions cardstock by Core'dinations.
This next card uses my sweet pea stamp in a very different way. Every single piece of paper on this card was a scrap! I used the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch to create this card plus the black striped circle fits with the Little Red Wagon challenge.
I stamped just one of the flowers on the spray on patterned paper and then stamped two of the leaves on another piece of patterned paper.
Notice the embossed design in this card base, another piece of Core Impressions by Core'dinations. I used my brand new Tim Holtz embossing plate on the white cardstock.
