Hello- Love What You Do!

Hello- Love What You Do!

Welcome! Happy Monday,

I tried a new technique for me, I wanted to see how it looked and how it would turn out. I ended up being pleased with the results. I drew inspiration for today’s card from the Global Design Project .  I also found inspiration from WWC177-Charlotte’s Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge.

The card base is Fresh Fig.  I have double matted using Mint Macaron and Grapefruit Grove. For the art piece I cut a piece of watercolor paper 3 x 3-3/4.  I use a stamping block ( you can see it in the picture above). I pressed it lightly on the Mint Macaron stamp pad and then stamped on the watercolor paper.  I stamped, then stamped again without re-inking. The lines on the stamping block gave even more dimension to the piece.  

I then stamp using Memento Black Ink and the Love What You Do Stamp Set to stamp the flowers on the Mint Macaron piece.  I colored the flowers using Grapefruit Grove Stampin Pad and a Blender Pen.The flowers appear to have tiny dots all through them and this is from stamping on the Mint Macaron background. I wrapped three strands of the Nature’s Twine around the card and tied a knot.

I did not put a sentiment inside, just stamped the flowers from the Love What You Do Stamp Set and colored. I left it blank except the flowers so a note could be written.

That’s all for today.  Hope you enjoyed seeing my card.

  1. Shirley, what a beautiful color combination for this card, these are certainly colors I wouldn’t have normally put together myself, but together they are beautiful. I’m glad you could combine the two for our challenge this week at Watercooler Wednesday. Thanks for playing along!

    1. Crystal, thank your for your kind encouraging words and for taking the time from a busy schedule I am sure to stop by to leave your encouraging words.
