Hello and welcome to our Ink. Stamp. Share monthly blog hop. Our theme this month is Spring/Summer Sale-A-Bration and I chose the Garden Wishes stamp set for a floral take on this theme.
I wanted to show a softer card using the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper. For the design of this card, I began by choosing my colour palette. I started off by picking Misty Moonlight which was a colour in the DSP. I do this quite often as it gives me a starting point to pick my coordinating colours. Plus with our amazing colour coordinated products it’s just easy to match cardstock and embellishments.
I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock with Pool Party and Misty Moonlight as a backdrop for the dandelion. Watercolouring is a great technique for achieving a soft look to your projects. Then I added some extra leaves die cut from Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Some extra colour was added with Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. The edges of the flower and leaves were sponged with Soft Suede giving some warmth to the stark white edges.
Some Bumblebee Gingham Trim ties in with the dandelion and I’ve added a cute Ladybug Trinket to embellish the card. Isn’t it cute?
I hope my project inspires you to use your Designer Series Paper with alternate colour palettes and have fun creating! Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
