This card will appear in the Paper Crafts Special Issue, Stamp It! in January 2010.
The new Flourishes releases will be available at Stamper’s Dream on Friday night. Every month I think, it couldn’t possibly get better, but, oh yes it did! This is one of the newest set, Peaches and Cherries. And yummy would be the perfect word! :)
Flourishes has beautiful images to color, which I love. But this time, I thought, I want to try something different. I stamped the image 3 times onto Neenah Solar White paper with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black. One image I cut out. The second image I only colored the leaves and cut them out, and with the third image, I did the letter press technique. (to see how to do this, see my tutorial HERE). I used chalk ink on my Paisley Impressabilities and ran it through the Wizard. Then I added more ink to the white areas on the peaches. I chose an ink that was two shades lighter than what I had used on the Impressabilities. (the Colorbox Chalk ink Ques make this pretty easy) I layered the pieces on top of the complete image with foam dots.
The patterned papers are from October Afternoon’s Cherry Hill collection, in a fabulous 8x8 size, and I used the sketch from 2Sketches4You again this week. It really got my mojo going again. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
