Welcome to my crafty blog. I decided we needed a bright and cheerful card today, as the weather here in London has not been great. This is another one of the new sets from Julie Hickey – ‘floral happiness’, and I thought it was perfect for this week’s photo inspiration challenge from Just Add Ink. I also used the grid from TicTacToe for several of the elements – I went across the bottom row with embossing / layers / scallops
I started by brushing some clouds into the centre of a 6×6 card blank using the Claritystamp mask. I’ve used these to meet the ‘scallops’ criterion from the TicTacToe challenge grid. I then die cut a frame from yellow card and embossed it with the Stampin’ Up! ‘pinewood planks’ folder, to pick up the door in just Add Ink’s photo.
I next stamped the floral spray from Julie Hickey’s set and coloured it using Artistry inks and a waterbrush. Once dry, I fussy cut it and attached it to the lower edge of the frame with foam pads, to give the layer some dimension.
I finished by stamping the sentiment in Archival ‘watering can’ using one of the stamps from Julie Hickey’s ‘positive wishes’ set.
This isn’t my usual colour palette, but I think it turned out pretty well.
