This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo and Dapper Denim. These are the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up!
I recently had a birthday and and needed to send a thank you card to my friend. I created this card with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and the sentiment is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set. The layer with the die cut leaf edge I first applied ink to the uncut layer with a brayer. I inked it up then rolled it off a few times before rolling onto the layer because I wanted a lighter shade of the Dapper Denim to provide contrast to the flowers. After drying I die cut the leaf edge then adhered to a layer of Dapper Denim.
I used the Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White card stock to created the flowers. The leaves are Dapper Denim. The Whisper White was a bit stark so I used the dotted stamp from the Timeless Textures set. I stamped some of the ink off before stamping on some of the dots so the color is of different intensity.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark first then Dapper Denim and heat embossed with retired Iridescent embossing powder to make it sparkle.
I hope my card inspires you to play with these colors!
Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments and be inspired to join the challenge.
