The card shared tonight was supposed to have gone in the mail by Wednesday. Alas, it did not make it. This is another image, found during the snippet cleanup, and already colored. I stamped out a portion of the motif to add some extra petals for dimension. The original was stamped in Rich Cocoa, but I used Gray Flannel for the extra petals.
- Old Hero Arts wooden dogwood stamp. Colored with copics, die cut with the Lil Inker Square stax. Used DI Spun Sugar, Sage and then ?Pumice? just to darken the corners. Stamped part of the stamp with Gray Flannel onto a white snippet, and had to experiment to match the pink colors done earlier. R81 & 83 worked. Tried R85 in one place, and it was much too dark.
- CL Doily die on some script paper, using only half the die cut.
- snippet of DCWV green pattern paper, embossed with a new Mbossibility folder.(don't remember the name, but can provide info).
- new MBox tag die (Teramo Labels) stamped with SU Teeny Tiny sentiments on a white snippet. Narrow white grosgrain ribbon was dyed with Copic refill R81. (Drop a generous drop in a plastic bag, scrunch the ribbon around, and custom color any white or cream ribbon).
The first photo has a yellow tone, but the enlarged photo below reflects the color more accurately. Done with the same camera, no setting changes either!
Hopefully the cropped view will show the raised dimension a bit better. Added clear WoStella on some leaves & petals. Yellow rhinestones added for centers. (after I used a Viva Gold Pearl pen and didn't get very nice results. Blame to the Operator, not the pen.). Loving those Lil Inker dies too.
Have colored this stamp before, using yellow greens instead of pinks. The greens over a gray stamping, looked very delicate & pretty. I like this color combo ok, but think I like the yellow greens much better. That one had darker leaves too, as the image needed some strong contrast.
Since this card has a few snippets, and since I have been an absentee playmate lately, I'm taking this over to Pixie's Snippet Playground, Week 123. The linky widget is still open for 33 hours, so you've time to hunt up a snippet or 2, and come play with a lovely, talented group of cardmakers.
Ya'll have a wonderful evening, Happy Friday, and as always, thanks so much for looking in. Many Hugs & Blessings too.
