Blog problems kept me from getting this posted before the deadline at Embellish Mag, but I love this card so I have to post it! The challenge was to do a birthday card using the color provided: raspberry, blue, green, brown. Sort of a bold color combo.
This is the first time I’ve inked up my Vintage Picnic set, but I am loving it. One cool thing about the stamp set is the basket is symmetrical. I actually stamped the plain basket and cut it out and then decided I wanted the weave image. I flipped over my cut basket and was able to stamp the weave and didn’t lose any outlines! Clear stamps rock! 😉
The outside is pretty simple, so I went overboard on the inside – a first for me!
At first I didn’t want to stamp and color all the tulips on the inside so I tried to do something else…but it wouldn’t work so I just did it. I do love how it turned out. The “basket” was done by using the 4 line background image from Background Basics – Retro and then just drawing little vertical lines to simulate a weave.
