Monochromatic Orchid Oasis – Softly Sophisticated

As I started creating this card for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Instagram hop, I realised that I really hadn’t extensively used Orchid Oasis in it’s tenure as an In-Color. I’m glad I’ve got to spotlight it before it leaves us in a couple of months.

Every card has an idea that it starts with and for this one it was those little flowers from the Softly Sophisticated stamp set. These were stamped and fussy cut and although it took a little bit of time it was worth the effort. This stamp set is part of a bundle which is a Sale-A-Bration reward. You can get it free until 29th February with a $180 purchase.

For the background I blended ink through a mask and then stamped the words from the Quiet Meadow stamp set while the mask was in place.

Here’s how I created the splattered look behind the flowers.

FOCAL POSTAGE STAMP
  • Blend Orchid Oasis ink around the edges
  • Use a Water Painter to splatter Craft ink refill on the postage stamp, flicking the brush against the cap. The refill needs to be a little runny.
  • Using the Water Painter, add Craft ink around the edges of the die cut
  • Leave to completely dry
  • Stamp leaves and dots in Tuxedo Black ink

I added some ink blending on the matte layer which was embossed with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder. This created depth against the card base.

Flower filled Wheelbarrow with Flight & Airy DSP

This wheelbarrow from the Garden Meadow bundle is giving me lots of colouring fun. Taking my colours from the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper, This paper can be yours free with a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration.

Colour Palette Garden Meadow card with Flower Filled Wheelabarrow

I coloured in the wheelbarrow in Lost Lagoon – a nice change to the usual neutral colours. Multi-coloured flowers add to the spring feel of this card and tie in with the background flowers. Designer Series Paper, many times, helps me with selecting colours for my projects as the hard work has been done for me. It makes it so easy to select my coordinating Cardstock and embellishments to complete my project.

I added a tone-on-tone sheet of DSP from the same pack to bring in a neutralising layer in the centre inbetween all the colours.
