I'm still really loving the Woodgrain Silhouettes Stamp set I won from WPlus9 Design Studio! I LOVED the woodgrain background stamp the moment I saw it on Dawn's blog when she previewed the set, but what I have really have fallen in love with is the crocus flower stamp. I've made several cards with it and my favourite technique is to create varigated petal colours. I got the idea from my blog buddy Karen Baker when she posted this card using the same stamp.
Here are just a few of the cards I made with the Crocus flower (all similar layouts; just swapped out the colours).
Varigated PINK: I'm loving the Ripe Avacado with the hot pink ribbon. The patterned paper is from a K&Company Chrismas paper pad!
Varigated VIOLET (oo--there's some alliteration for ya!): I don't own PTI's Polka Dot Basics (yet--teehee), but I do own PTI's Beautiful Blooms--which has an individual dot stamp. I painstakingly stamped each dot with Versamark to create my background here.
Varigated BLUE: I added the script stamp (Hampton Art) last minute because I ended up getting some small ink smudges on the white panel while I was distressing the edges. No need to throw away a mistake when you can cover it up, right?! Some more patterned paper from my K&Company Christmas pad too.
Very simple layouts on each of these cards, but they've turned out to be some of my favs!
