Get Well

PP490 – A Color Challenge from Claire

Using an older, little used, stamp set called Vogue Vases from GKD and matching the Paper Player colours as closely as possible, I stamped the flower image onto the die cut stitched rectangle piece. Coloured using ink pads. I stamped the vase on a scrap piece and fussy cut. Popped it up over the flowers. Added some scrap strips to create a kind of shelf. I offset the panel over some left over gold cs and then glued to card front. Added some bling at the bottom and the angled sentiment at the top. I kept this as simple as possible and am happy with how it turned out. In daylight my green card front is very similar to the actual colour but looks lighter in the photograph.

    1. Texture came by accident because the stamp pad needs reinking (waiting for it to arrive) and my stamp didn’t pick up enough colour. I was going to restamp and then decided I liked it this way. Added a few gold dots to give a bit more interest. And the gold edges came about because I used both the flat stamp and the edge one on top with gold ink.

    1. I’ve always liked gold accents – have some in my home and had to persuade myself not to add more. This gold paper was a gift from Bonnie. I love it – its perfect in tone and shine and has a sticky back too.

  1. I love your clean design, and the texture/detail on the shelf and vase along with all the gold accents look great! Everything stands out so nicely on the white, and the gems finish it off beautifully.

  2. Sometimes a poorly stamped image works out and this is one of those times. I was going to reink the stamp but decided I liked it as it was. Glad you like it.
