Hello there everybody. I saw this sketch over at Less is More and I thought as I am a bit short of time at the moment it would make a nice easy card. I used a Chocolate Baroque set of stamps called Poppy Meadow, one of the smaller stamps in the set. I have used this stamp before, and in similar colours. I don't know why, but with this flower just seems to draw me to orange, red and blue.
I used a smallish rectangular shaped snippet of white card and stamped with Black Archival ink and then coloured with my Spectrum Noir Pencils - Primaries. I made the background using the same set of pencils. I mounted this on to a piece of gold card, and then on to a piece of dark blue. I stamped the sentiment using the same Black Archival ink on to a snippet of white and then mounted this on to another snippet of blue card. I used a Gold 7" x 5" card and shaved approximately 1/4" off the length and the width which I felt made it look more balanced. In real life it is actually a bright pearlescent gold colour but looks rather beige in the photo.
Thank you for dropping by today.
I am entering the following challenges:
Less is More - Week 186 a sketch challenge.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Week 139 where we use snippets of card or paper, and I have excelled myself as every single piece was a snippet!
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
