Penned & Painted

So low and behold this card was supposed to be my Monday post, but, well, it just didn’t happen.  My inspiration came from the Freshly Make Sketches Challenge (which is now closed, oh well).


This card was interesting – yes that word – it’s neither good nor bad.  I originally had one idea involving vellum and I thought it’d be pretty cool – a play on the tag and negative space.  Well voila that didn’t happen.

So this was Plan B.

My card starts with a base of Peekaboo Peach layered with some Whisper White.

I first stamped the two-layered flowers from the Penned & Painted Stamp Set in Peekaboo Peach (first stamping off for the lighter color)  Then I cut a 2″ tag from Whisper White and layered it over a bit of the flowers.  That way when I stamped the black outline it would cover both the tag and the card itself.  Before adhering the stamp I layered it over some Peekaboo Peach as well and strung some Black Thick Baker’s Twine through the top.

For the sentiment detail, I first stamped the sentiment from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set in Peekaboo Peach and then used the dotted stamp included in the Penned & Painted Stamp Set to stamp around the sentiment, stamping off for the dots and then full strength for the overlapped flower.
