I was a bit concerned that I’d lost my stamping “mojo” this week but then I saw the challenge at ColourQ and I knew they were my kind of colours and I should give it a try.
I also wanted to incorporate these colours into the challenge at SUO challenges which was to use a wheel on your card. I’ll admit the wheel is very subtle but it really does add to the depth and “prettiness” of the card.
I used Pretty in Pink satin ribbon to make another one of those gorgeous ribbon flowers. This one turned out quite different from my razzleberry one, I guess every flower is unique! Look here if you'd like to see my other ribbon flower card.
I used my brayer to put crumb cake ink on my vintage wallpaper embossing folder and ran it through the big shot. I used my square scallop die for the first time too, and of course made a rectangle instead out of blushing bride.(ha!) I distressed this piece a lot, I sprayed it with shimmer mist and “scrunched” it, flattened it out and then sponged crumb cake on the edges and creases.
I used the very vintage wheel in PIP and then over stamped in crumb cake the thoughts and prayers tree. I did deviate slightly from the colours by using espresso to stamp the sentiment.
Everything on the card is very sponged and distressed.
Stamps : Very vintage wheel, thoughts and prayers
Card : pink pirouette, blushing bride, crumb cake, white
Ink : crumb cake, PIP, espresso
Other : PIP satin ribbon, heat gun, sticky strip, circle punch, sponge, brayer, big shot, scallop square, vintage wallpaper, antique brad
I am really happy with how this turned out thanks to two great challenges.
