Now I have a ripper of a card for you today. I started working on it on Friday and finally finished it today. I originally started with the latest Inkspirations sketch, This week being hosted by Cindy from the DT. She also gave us an extra challenge of using something you've been hoarding for a while. Here's this weeks sketch...
With that in mind I also felt like getting my fingers inky so I grabbed my re-inkers and headed to one of Stampin' buddies places. I combined our small stash of reinkers to stamp using the baby wipe technique. This technique can be used SO many ways and always has a beautiful and individual effect. I stamped using Petal Pizzazz and here's a close up of how my flowers turned out.
Doesn't it just give those flowers and leaves a little 'pop' and an extra something special? I'm so happy with this effect that u just may see it more often.
Then I decided to use Wonderful Favourites set for a sentiment in the circle. This set is so great and really versatile. I would also check back here in a few days for an upcoming special involving this set. Again being in the mood for something different I decided to use the Rock n Roll Technique to stamp my sentiment. Is a close up of how it turned out
With all these elements combined I added a few other bits and pieces like some scrunched ribbon which is really popular at the moment, some DSP (What card would be complete without DSP?) and some dimension and here's the final result...
Stamp Set: Wonderful Favourites, Petal Pizzazz
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Gloss White, Summer Picnic DSP
Ink: Baha Breeze, Pacific Point
Reinkers: Baha Breeze, Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Circle Scissors Plus, Pacific Point Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Dimensionals, Stamp-a-ma-jig
Isn't it pretty? I'm really happy with how it turned out. Now the thing I've been hoarding is the DSP I used it the background. It is Summer Picinic DSP from the Summer Mini in 2008! Yep I'm definatly a hoarder! I also entered this card for Just Add Ink's current challenge which was Just Add Printed Paper (DSP).
Thanks for looking
