Good afternoon folks.
This a post to remind you that there is still time to join in the theme/sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations.
Here are a couple of cards I made followig both the theme and sketch.
I made the first with a couple of challenges in mind then went to play again keeping it one layer but a mirror image.
The flower stamps I used are one of my faves, Blooming Buds and the HAPPY BIRTHDAY is from the Balloons and Banners set. The text stamp in the background was stamped and embossed with white after I had stamped and masked the flowers and leaves. On the first card I washed some Salty Ocean DI over the text leaving the flowers white, then coloured them with wages of Spiced Marmalde and Mustard seed. When I went over the stems and leaves in the Mustard Seed they went green, just what I wanted! For the one layer card I coloured the flowers and stems first then washed in the blue.The first ended up darker than the second, not sure which I like best.
Anyway now it's over to you. Please check out the main page of all the important details and why not visit the DT for more inspiration and join us.
