WWYS #157 – Floral Statements

This week, the What Will You Stamp? challenge features the Floral Statements stamp set.

I’m so excited to have been invited to be their guest designer this week!   This is such a beautiful set.  If you have it, please consider joining in this challenge.

Now, here is my creation:

WWYS #157 - Floral Statements

First, I embossed the Hello image in black onto Shimmery White cardstock.  Then I needed to choose my coloring medium and decided it was time to experiment with the Brusho Crystal Colours.  Now I’m hooked on these vibrant colors!  It was so fun to mix the colors until I had the shades I wanted to use for this card.  I mixed Brilliant Red & Gamboge for the flowers and Prussian Blue and Yellow for the leaves.  After coloring the flowers and leaves, I added a light wash of Soft Sky in the background.

The Wood Textures DSP provides a nice neutral background for this beautiful image.  I wanted to add just a touch of embellishment, so I tied Linen Thread below the image and added a few scallops cut from another piece of Wood Textures DSP.  The scallops were cut using the basket Thinlet from the Window Box Thinlets set.  Last, I added the small label also embossed in black.

Thanks for stopping by and please see what the talented WWYS design team has created over at the What Will You Stamp? challenge blog.
