I’ve been playing again this morning and made a card using the latest template from Kathy’s Waffle Sketch File.
I was a worried when I first started because I had given myself the challenge of a limited colour pallet. That being two papers from the Basic Grey Perhaps collection, one of which was plain and a sheet of White Vellum.
I put the top half of the plain paper through an embossing folder to give the impression of two different papers on the finished card.
Both the flowers are stamps.
The largest one is ‘Just Plain Dotty’ from Blond Moments, which I stamped with VersaMark Ink and embossed in Gold. I then run it through an embossing folder to add some texture.
The smaller flower is from a set of Personal Impressions stamps called Hearts & Flowers.
This one I stamped directly onto the patterned paper using VersaFine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
