As much as I love flower stamps, I come to the conclusion that flowers especially when they're large size is simply not my forte. For our last day of pairing up, Kelly and I use Hero Arts Delicate Blossom.
Oh my goodness, I was about to give up last night and email Kelly that I want to cancel today's challenge. I was so frustrated and ruined 4 cards, before I finally okay with my card. Didn't help that those fine embossing powder kind of fell on my desk all over. Yep... I was so annoyed with myself last night.
Well, here's the card.
I mean, the image is gorgeous and I saw many beautiful creations using this same stamp, and it frustrated me when I have the idea in my head and it just wouldn't translate in reality. At first, I was going for watercolor technique, but the colors just didn't reach the depth that I want. With my fingers all messy from the colors and fine embossing powder irritated me, those works get tossed in the trash.
I end up using vellum, embossed the flowers, color them with distress ink, and fussy cut them. Almost ditch this, too as when I cut it, some of the embossing flake off. I told myself to just calm down and keep cutting. There should be a way to cover the part where the embossing flake off. :)
Yep, by over lap the flower a bit and using Rangers white enamel to trace the flake off area. So... flower & me... love the flowers..., but seriously a challenge for me. Anyway, after the card and a major desk cleaning, I'm a happy camper again. :)
Oh by the way, for those who likes good deals, at Old Navy today and tomorrow only, all their ribbed tank top only $2 each! It's summer and you can't have too many tank top. Time to stock up in all the colors. I saved their ads because it's awesome for color inspirations. See below.
What do you think? Fun & cheerful color combo? Well peeps, thank you for stopping by and I wish you all a super duper great weekend!
