My is it humid out there today, rain forecast but at the moment there is no sign of it.
My card today was inspired by my teamie Carol over at ATSM.
She's been experimenting with a stamping with stencils technique over on the Tim Holtz web site so I thought I would pop along to have a look. I had a play and came up with a couple of sheets that worked but weren't the right colour so had another play and came up with the colours that are the focus of the latest challenge over at Crazy for CAS.
Here is my card using, you've guessed it Glorious Gardenia!
I used DI in Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone, and Evergreen Bough to print the stripe pattern using the Tim Holtz stencil -'Stripes' The sentiment is also stamped in Pumice Stone. All in all it creates a very tranquil looking card, don't you think? So thanks Carol for the inspiration.
I cut the gardenia out of a leftover piece of print and mounted it on a white fussy cut background, I decided to leave off any more embellishments as the background although soft, is quite busy.
I shall also enter the following challenges:-
Crazy for CAS - #50
CASology - Stripes
Loves Rubberstamps - Anything goes with the option of stripes
STAMPlorations August Challenge - Stamps and die cuts
OK, the sun is still shining so may take the dog for a walk if I can find his lead!
