Hiya, ladies (and gents, too!), I hope you are all well and happy today.
I finally got off my duff to play along with another Make It Monday challenge; it feels like it's been years since I've done one of these.
This week, the challenge is coloring with white ink, white pigment ink in particular, I do believe.
I've done this before with the stunning Year of Flowers: Lily of the Valley set from Papertrey Ink, so I wanted to try a different stamp this time. I have such a fondness for the Year of Flowers series, I decided to utilize this technique on the Roses set this time. White roses sounded very much like a wedding card to me, so I created this simple "rustic elegance" (is that an oxymoron?) card to keep in my stash. It's neutral enough that it shouldn't clash with anyone's choice of wedding color, so here it is for your viewing pleasure and critique- tee hee!
If you look closely, or even enlarge the photo, you can see the sheet music impressed area on the far right side of the Kraft panel; it's subtle, but shows up well enough in real life.
As a side note, I colored the rose petals individually with a cotton swab, although after watching Heather's video, I'm going to have to find some of those teeny sponge sticks, as they look as though they would do a better job.
What's in it:
Cardstock: Rustic Cream, Kraft
Stamps: Year of Flowers: Roses
Inks: Fresh Snow, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Smokey Shadow
Impression Plate: Sheet Music
Ribbon: 1/4" white silk
Pearls: Hero Arts (colored with an E51 Copic marker)
Other: corner rounder punch from EK Success
That's it for now; have a fab day (and I really mean that!)!!!
