Ink. Stamp. Share – Evergreen Elegance

Welcome to the September Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop where we have a colour challenge this month. We were required to use a minimum of 3 colours and we could also include Black, White and metallics. I managed to incorporate all 5 colours as they coordinated so well together.

I created a slimline card inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches FMS504.

I created a light wash with Petal Pink on the Basic White panel. Then I added some splatters with a Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Writer Marker. To apply the Gilded Leafing, I stamped the dots from the Textures & Frames stamp set in Versamark, applied Heat n’ Stick Powder and then added the Leafing for a bit of sparkle. I felt the Rich Razzleberry splatter wasn’t enough so using the brush tip of the marker I added some extra dots around the Gilded Leafing.

I used the Stamparatus to get the variegated shading on the trees adding colour with a sponge dauber.

The sentiment label has been stamped in Soft Sea Foam third generation stamping using one of the stamps from the free Textures & Frames stamp set. Get this set free during Sale-A-Bration until 30th September with a $90 order. I added a striip of Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper with a border of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock to complete this colour challenge.

A full product list is at the bottom of this post so you can recreate this card. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and for more inspiration click the Next Button to see Victoria LIttlewood’s project.
