I have not had a chance (or project in mind) to use the new In Colors. So in my paper bin they sat. Well, last night I swear they wee taunting me at midnight! "Play with me, get out of bed, paly with me!" :) lol So I did what any dedicated stamping addict would do...I got out of bed and got to work!
Here is what I came up with:
First I stamped the flower with Stazon on watercolor paper. Then I colored the flower using an aquapainter and kiwi, red and pink ink pads. I also added some stickles to the center of the flower.
Next I used the spritzer with cocoa marker to lightly mist the background of the image as I found it was too stark and boring without it. I then matted on red.
The designer paper was matted on kiwi, then the ribbon was added and the main image using pop dots.
On the red layer I used the corner rounder to create a scalloped edge. Then I stamped with the wording stamp from the same set with red and then sponged the edges with the same color. I used the brad punch to make the holes in the center of each scallop and then the gel pen to doodle each one. Then I added the buttons and adhered the designer layer with pop dots.
The card base was sponged around the edges with pink and then I added all said layers with pop dots. Lastly I stamped the sentiment with chocolate ink.
