I was stamping with some friends today (hi ladies!) and since I was busy chatting I messed up as I was demonstrating a card. So, rather than throw it in the rubbish bin, I decided to use and re-work it. So, that was the birthing of a blog post - one stamp, two ways! I like the idea so much I think I will make it a regular post each week - what do you think, is that a good idea?
Here is the first card.
This card is created on a basic gray base, with some twitterpated dsp. I stamped the large floral image from Bordering on Romance all over the whisper white cardstock. I love this technique, spotlighting, and after coloring the image and popping it on blushing bride cardstock, I put the tiny pearls in the centers of the flowers. I finished the card off with some riding hood red satin ribbon and the fresh FREE organza ribbon available through Sale-A-Bration!
So here is the second card.
I love this particular image in the Bordering on Romance set, it's perfect for coloring, or creating your own background paper. I am looking forward to playing with it on watercolor paper too! Here is a close-up, so you can see the center of the flowers.
