Thank you for joining us for our weekly Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week is cards that are red, yes, another favorite of mine!
Red you say. . . . . .how about soft shades of red?
That go BAM as a flower?
I amazed myself with this flower. Why? Because it is created from something else! I used the Textured Floral stamp set.
The leaf on the left (in the middle) was used to create all these petals. I inked the image in Poppy Parade and stamped twice next to each other going all around in a circle pattern. Stamping twice gives a dark and light effect. I went back and did the same again with Flirty Flamingo filling in gaps. By adding this other color, it added depth to the flower.
I then proceeded to fussy cut this beautiful bloom I had just created.
It needed something as a background. The Sketched Plaid background was perfect. Since the flower petals were not perfectly edged, the Deckled Rectangles Dies softened those edges of the layer.
The sentiment is also from the stamp set, keeping everything all together.
What do you think? I’d love to read your comments on this! Leave me some love!
We will see you next week with more great inspirations in card making!
