Good morning, welcome to the weekend!
Next weekend is Mothering Sunday so this week at Fantasy Stampers we would like to see your projects on the theme of -
Now because we are a traditional stamping challenge I had to think hard about how to incorporate a stamp into the main focus of my image. I wanted to enter the challenge over at Memory Box challenge, it's been on my to do list for awhile but I didn't have any stamps from them, so I remembered about an article I'd read, about extending your dies and made my own stamp. So here is my card.
I used my MB Perky Poppy die to cut an outline, then cut it again this time using some funky foam. I had the positive outline as well as the inner for the petals, so as I wanted to try using the shape left after cutting the die I decided to make a stamp from the petals.
I trimmed the white top panel to leave a border of base card showing, then with the panel in place I drew a faint line around the area of the flower heads with a pencil. Removing the top panel I used my homemade stamp inked with Memento Rose Bud, to stamp inside the pencil line.
I added some more colour to the stems and leaves of the outline die cut then placed it back in the top panel, securing it with doublesided tape. I used a freebie set of stamps from this month's Creative Stamping magazine for the greeting and some pink pearls, then popped up the top panel over the stamped petals. I didn't get it exactly right but I quite like that you can see a little bit of the base card.
Please check out the rest of the DT's inspiration and why not join us this time.
