And I am back with another card! I got inspired by many challenges this time. 🙂
For this card, I first experimented with the colors – I wanted to get a nice combination of colors for the flowers with dark and a light shades. I chose Memento Bahama Blue, Danube Blue and Nautical Blue inks for stamping the flower blossoms image using the Blossom Spray stamp from Stampendous.
I first stamped the background using Mustard Seed and Wild Honey distress inks and Burlap stamp from JustRite. Then followed up with the blossoms. I then die cut the tag shape using Timeless Tags 2 from WPlus9 – partially – since I didn’t want the entire length, and then I cut the bottom half using a craft knife. I die cut a few more pieces using scrap card stock and adhered them all together, trimming off the excess.
I adhered the whole piece on the card base which I covered with Vanilla pigment ink from Versamark and then stamped the sentiment from Eloquence from Penny Black in Hero Arts Black ink. Finally added the bow (as an afterthought! :P) as an embellishment.
I wanted to use a vellum tag, but no matter what I tried, it just wouldn’t fit. Well, its ok, I guess. I kinda like the vintage-ish look I got on this card 🙂
