Stamping on Pattern Paper
The Mix It Up Monday Challenge at Stamp TV this week is to use pattern paper and stamp on it. I thought it sounded like fun so I had some time and decided to create a card doing just that.
I used pattern paper from the Gina K. Designs Watercolor Garden Paper Pack. The solid daisy that I stamped in shades of Cheery Red and Cranberry Tart are from the Gina K. Designs Pressed Flowers set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. I also used the sentiment from another Gina K. Designs set called Wild Flowers which is also illustrated by Melanie. I just love that verse as it is so comforting to me and hopefully to others as well.
After my pattern paper panel was stamped I added it to a layer of Black and Cherry Red card stock and again onto Black card stock before placing the design on a base card of Sweet Corn yellow. All the card stock is from Gina K. Designs. I am always happy with her card stock and she has so many wonderful colors to chose from. The sentiment stamped in black ink onto Sweet Corn was also layered onto Black card stock.
To tie the inside of the card to the outside design I stamped another bold daisy in the lower left corner of the card.
I chose these papers and colors as I wanted this to be a card of hope and cheer. I think I was successful in that endeavor.
Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by.
