Happy Weekend everyone, I hope you are enjoying the summer. We've had a lot of rain so the gardens are constantly needing pruning but everything is so lush it's great.
I have contrasting card designs today using Chocolate Baroque's beautiful new Poppy Meadow set. I took some of my dies & an embossing folder out for play as well.
I see that Rhedd and Rosie's current challenge is "Anything Goes" so I'm joining in with this design.
For the card above I stared by creating a little scene using Distress Inks, ripped card stock and a mask created with a circle negative. Next I stamped one the gorgeous poppies from the Poppy Meadow set with Cocoa Memento Dye Ink and coloured them with my Prisma Pencils.
The white background was embossed with Acanthus Cuttlebug folder. I used Crealies CL CF 20 & CL CS 23 for the flowers & leaves which I punched from a light blue sheet of Basic Grey paper which added colour by blending Distress Inks over top. I stamped with a fragment from the Lace Fragment set on some of the flowers. I used a little brad from my stash to hold them together.
This next card below is quite bright with Dylusions inks, maybe you'll need sunglasses for this one !
card above started out different but that happens a lot. When I
stamped the Poppy image onto the background I realized it was lost with the busy background. So I
decided to outline it with a Spellbinder die, using a pigment pen, and bleached the area inside the outline. I painted with Pink, Blue & Green
Dylusions (I just add a little ink to my craft mat with the end of the
sprayer and paint with a brush & water). I stamped the corners
with Salty Ocean Distress Ink and also used TCW Harlequin stencil with
Salty Ocean DI. Love is from Artistic Expressions. This design is different, but I thought I would show a contrast to the first design.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
