Good afternoon, last night I sat down and made two cards, yes that’s right two cards in one night. My first one is for this weeks Clean and Simple sketch.
For this card I used the colour coach to help me out, as I knew I wanted to use Rich Razzleberry for the flowers but couldn’t decide what other colours to use. so the colour coach gave me Pretty in Pink and Early Espresso. At first I wasn’t too sure about the Early Espresso but it came together nicely. I embossed the cardstock with the Textured Impressions folder but it was too much so I put it back through using another folder and the result was great you can see the textured impressions behind the swirls but it is only faint so it works well. As for the flowers I wanted each set to look different but this stamp set only has two flowers in the pack and I didn’t want to use any others, so I stamped the large ones in Rich Razzleberry and the smaller ones in Pretty In Pink. with the curled ones on top I stamped in Pretty in pink after Rich Razzleberry without cleaning the stamp, this gives a slightly darker shade of pink. I simply used my piercing tool to curl the top one up.
Here is the Sketch:
