For the love of Country (Country Home that is!)
I was completely thrilled with the colors this week! I knew immediately that I was going to ink up the Country Home stamp set and go to town! I LOVE when ideas are instant!
I stamped the flower group in Tuxedo Black ink all over a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and adhered that onto a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock for my card base. I opened up the Tin Tile embossing folder I had just received and quickly ran a piece of Mint Macaron card stock through the Big Shot with it. What wonderful and easy texture it adds! A strip of Blackberry Bliss cut with a pennant at one end helps to break up the background and grounds the focal point on the piece of Whisper White card stock. I used ink pads in all three colors along with a Blender Pen to add the soft coloring to my main image. The words are from the Waterfront stamp set that I inked up and stamped off once before stamping on my card front. I liked the softer shade of Blackberry Bliss it created verses stamping it at full strength. I added a double Linen Thread bow to the handle and voila! a gorgeous card to be proud of. LOVE it! Happy Stamping my friends!
