Hello and welcome back! What a privilege it is to take part in this month's blog hop with our special guest the talented Patty Bennett! I'm star struck and a fan of her work, as she has inspired me in my own card making.
In this month's blog hop we have been inspired by Patty and this is the card I have CASED from her...It's just divine! and I love the Rose Wonder bundle.
These are the cards I made. I was so inspired that I ended up making 3 variations all using the fabulous Rose Wonder stamp set and dies.
To make them my own creations, I have done my cards in reverse, and did the negative space colouring using sponge daubers to apply the colours. It gives it a kind of modern look to the card and gives you another way of using your stamps. It's excellent for outlined stamps and instead of colouring inside the lines you colour on the outside of the line, leaving the image plain and gives it a completely different look and changes things up.
Having the coordinating thinlit dies of the roses is so useful and able to cover up any colour that went over the line. As a tip I used the blender pen for the tight spaces and works great to blend the colours.
For the smaller roses I have mounted them on a zig zag border mat. Instead of the reguler square mat I have used the zig zag edgelits dies to create interest, giving it that the pinking shear look. The sentiments have been heat embossed in gold and silver just to tie in with the die cut image in the coordinating colour scheme. For the colouring you could also use watercolours, Stampin' Up! markers, or even copic markers - the sky is the limit. The colours used are Calypso Coral, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Pacific Point and Garden Green.
I hope you like these cards and are inspired to give it a go. It's very quick and easy and are available as a kit from me, all you need is to purchase the beautiful Rose Wonder Stamp set or bundle to save even more and you can make endless creations with them.
