Flowers and Stripes
I'm playing along at Time Out where it's a Home Sweet Home theme, and this is the inspiration photo:
I got two panels of card and on one panel I swooshed Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Pickled Raspberry Distress Inks. On the other panel I stamped the leaves and some flowers in Memento Inks, and the large flowers with Versafine Onyx Black, and painted them with diluted Distress Inks. For the life of me, I can't bring myself to colour-fill neatly when I'm painting with Distress Inks or watercolours - I just have to slosh!
I sliced the panels up, arranged them how I wanted them then held them together with washi tape while I put them through the Xyron machine (anybody else still got one?), then adhered them to my card base. Added a green sentiment panel and a fussy cut flower to finish.
I'm over at STAMPlorations tonight with a tutorial on this card:
Pop on over and take a look!
