Hello again, crafters! Even though I welcome fall and it’s rainy days (after this horribly hot summer!), I am not above enjoying some nice late flower blooms that bring color to my day. In today’s project, I am using a new stamp set by My Favorite Things – as you might have noticed, I love doodly florals and these are just so much fun.
I actually made this card a short while ago and already sent it off to my crafty friend Sonja Kerkhoffs. It was a last-minute card because Sonja had been cheated out of her regular card for the Insta-Girls Bloghop by our postal service (they took two weeks to deliver it). So all of us sent Sonja an extra card, confident that at least one would make it through 🙂 Since Sonja does great things with flower stamps, I thought it would be appropriate to send her some floral images.
The color choices were already influenced by my yearning for fall – I love coloring fall leaves and the browns and yellows contrast nicely with the other colors. I am currently researching fall colors, so be prepared for some juicy colors on the blog in the the next two months.
My original attempt didn’t work perfectly. My mask lifted up in some places and so I didn’t have a pristine border. I tried to fix that with a white gel pen, but since this was a one layer CAS card, it just was visible. And my OCD didn’t let me leave it like that, so I created a die cut circle for the sentiment which helped to cover up parts of the not-so-perfect masking.
Thanks for stopping by today – hope you enjoyed the card! Have a fantastic weekend! I’m also sending this card off to the following challenges: Time Out “Make Your Mark” because … Copic Coloring; Addicted to Stamps and More because “Anything Goes”.
