I saw the Fusion Card Challenge
and no way I could resist entering. I love the picture and the colours. I know its my second post, sorry but I only just made it. Anyway......
I love the stamp I used for the flower and its so funny cause its a stamp I have had forever and a day, in a set of itty bitty flowers and vases and of course not been used. I have so so many flower stamps I reckon I could do one every day and still not use them all in a year (well maybe half a year but pretty close) and this is one I never even thought of and its so so pretty.
I didnt use the vases available in the stamps, I used some vases I have in dies and ended up adding to the size of the stamp to make it look bigger. I die cut the two vases first, one inside the other so it looks like one is slightly behind and as I'm typing this I am seeing I have a vase that is floating in the air. This is a very special vase that is actually held on the wall with a special invisible shelf so it looks like that ( yeah , you really believe that one don't you :)
Back to serious stuff, I stamped in pale pink distress ink and coloured with copics so it looks like no line drawing. I actually did each little flower head in three colours in the copics and feel the darkest colour right in the centre of each petal shows better IRL than in the photo.
I then coloured the vases adding different shades to give a bit of shape to them then glued them back into the negative.
I was quite happy with the end result and finished off with the die cut 'Beyoutiful'. This is the only part that I am not sure of and would love to know what you REALLY think. Is this word right for this card or more one you would use with a person/animal in reference to them??? I felt the black worked just not so sure on the word.
Anyway another card I am very happy with and would like to do again.
Sorry for the repost but I wanted to add this card to
I've been invited to go and play at the playground and hey I have used some snippets for this card, as in the front of the card, that I cut the vases from is a separate panel, and the black snippet for the sentiment so I'm in like Flynn, as they use to say.
Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
