So sometimes it takes looking at something in a different colour to know if it’s going to work for you. That’s what I have done with today’s Happiness Blooms at OnStage post. I’ve created a card in this fortnights colour challenge for Colour INKspiration.
Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Tanya Bell. Our colour challenge this fortnight centres on 2017-2019 InColour range. I can’t believe we only have a little over six months before these awesome colours retire….
I’ve used the Bloom by Bloom stamp set to show you how it these stamps can work in a different colour combination. Take a look…
So here I have used the large Tulip stamp and inked it in Powder Pink, then I used a sponge dauber to apply some Berry Burst ink to the top of the flower and down the sides a little. I stamped this first and then stamped the large stem in Tranquil Tide. Next was the smaller stem, off to the side followed by the smaller tulip coloured the same way.
That a great tip too by the way…. I found, in some cases, stamping the flower image first was easier. It would allow me to position it and angle it just the way I wanted it to sit. Then adding the stem later fitted in easy.
I finished off my tulips by adding some stamen in Lemon Lime Twist ink. I layered the Whisper White stamped cardstock on some Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and wrapped a piece of the Ombre ribbon around before apply dimensions. Then attached it to my Berry Burst cardbase.
I tied a separate bow in the Ombre ribbon and attached it to the card with a glue. Then stamped the the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink beneath the raised feature.
I really enjoyed making these, so made a few…
#simplestamping and layering techniques really are winners!
