Today's card took me out of my comfort zone, big time. I love to use lots of color on my cards and the challenge was to only use Black, White and Red. I think I dreamt about it last night, LOL, because when I got up this morning I knew exactly which stamps I was going to use to make it. I love the way it turned out and I think I will be trying this again soon.
Altenew Stamp Sets( Beautiful Day and Peony Bouquet)
Ranger Archival Ink ( Black and Grey-Watering Can)
Ranger Distress ink (Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany)
Ranger Distress watercolor paper
Hampton Arts sentiment
Canson red cardstock
Inkadinkado masking paper
I started by stamping out the different flowers on scrap paper to get my positioning just right. Then I started stamping the first flower by using Black to outline, then I used the Grey over the whole flower and stamped the shadows in Black, creating my focal point in the bouquet. I then masked it and stamped the second flower and the 2 smaller flowers in Black and the shadows in Grey. Again, I masked the Flowers and stamped the leaves in Black and masked them.
I stamped the rest in Black and then removed the masks. I was very happy with the result. I put down a light layer of Pumice Stone ink and water to give it depth and stamped, Thank You in Red. I finished by matting in Red.
I will be entering this card in these challenges:
