Ah, Gingham – I just couldn’t resist the challenge over at Just Add Ink Challenges. It’s a Choose Two challenge from Flowers, Ginham and splatters but I picked them all. I’ve used the colours from TGIF Challenges as inspiration for this project.

The first element I created for this card was the gingham background using the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. I blended Coastal Cabana and Lost Lagoon over the mask. When I create a background I generally create it on a quarter sheet of A4 Cardstock then cut it down to whatever size I need it. Any spare can be used to decorate the inside of your card and envelope or or another project.

I added some extra lines within the checks with a Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker. This month the Stampin’ Up! Creative Challege is to use Stampin’ Write Markers in a creative way. Our Markers are water based and there are many techniques and fun to be had with them.

I trimmed the gingham background and die cut the top with the Deckled Rectangles dies for a decorative border. Then I added a little strip of White Cardstock which was embossed with the Splatters (Stripes & Splatters) Embossing Folder. I inked up the Embossing Folder with Coastal Cabana and then ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. This filled in the colour in the gaps.

The daisies and leaves were die cut from Fluid 100 Carsdtock and watercoloured using ink refills. At first, I wanted to create some soft coloured daises but then went for the bolder colours and really loved the contrast. These daisies almost have a tie-dye look to them.

A White heat embossed sentiment die cut with the label from the Cheerful Daisies dies really pops against the pretty summery colours of this card.
