Happy Friday crafty friends! Kim with you this morning inspired by the current challenge theme Sparkle and Shine!
I really wanted to use the Sunburst Bold Prints background stamp on this project, I love the design of this stamp. I decided to go with a tone on tone background in colors that make me feel like summer!
I used Pale Tomato Shadow Ink for the tone on tone look and decided to use Kraft paper as the card base to offset the look. That inspired my choice of colored pencils for the Blossoms for Coloring all, also stamped on Kraft paper. I chose a mix of pinks and corals for the flowers and some yellows for the flower centres. I used my white colored pencil for highlights. I love the look of colored pencils on Kraft!
I then placed my colored flowers and leaves back in my stamp positioner and stamped them with Versamark ink and used some gold sparkle embossing powder on top. I love the effect! I die cut my flowers with the accompanying dies.
I then used the twine that was in the Hero Arts July card kit (If my memory serves) to unify the Kraft look. I popped-up my flowers and leaves with foam tape over the twine and added some glossy accents to the centres.
Once I was happy with the flower placement, I chose my sentiments. All from the Hero Arts Wonderful Stamp and Cut set. For the Wonderful die, I sandwiched some StickIt, Fun Foam and gold glitter paper to give it dimension. I simply stamped the accompanying sentiments on Kraft paper with some Hero Arts black die ink. I really liked the way this project turned out.
You still have time to join in on the fun at the challenge!
Thanks for taking the time!
