So glad that you have stopped by today. I’m excited to be participating for the first time in the Kre8tors Blog Hop. This month’s theme is The Hood River Fruit Loop. It’s a collection of farms in the Hood River Valley in Oregon, USA that offer fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other items straight off the farm.
We had to select 3 of the 5 featured colours beneath this beautiful photo. I have chosen Early Espresso, Petal Pink and Cherry Cobbler.
The Whisper White layer has been stamped in Early Espresso with the script from the Very Versailles stamp set. Then I added the flourish from Leave a Little Sparkle in Cherry Cobbler. 3 leaves were stamped on top with Early Espresso. To complete the background, I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker and created the splatter effect by flicking the brush side against the cap of the marker. This creates the subtle splatter look.
Next I drew 2 lines in pencil to indicate where I was going to cut through. The vertical line was 2.5 cm from left edge at top and 4.5 cm from left edge at bottom. The horizontal line was 11.5 cm from top on left side and 7.5 cm from top on right side.
I trimmed about 1/2 cm on either side of the pencil mark which forms the gap so the Early Espresso can show through.
I used the new Daisy Lane bundle and stamped and punched 3 daises, layering and curling the petals with a bone folder to create the flower.
