Loonie Stamper's Challenge - #103 Dazzling Bloom
The Loonie girls are at it again (they are at it every Friday!!) and this week the colors were so yummy I definately wanted to play along!! The colors, as you can see, are Kraft and Yellow with an additional challenge to use Text Paper. Interesting, until I typed this out, I had thought it was just to use text ... ooops!! Oh well, I love how my card turned out!!
I used a 'new to me' Papertrey Ink set In Bloom. I love it!! I colored the bloom in with Copic markers (Y13, Y21, and Y26). I had this yellow frame sitting around my scrap bin for a while now and decided to use it on this project. I added some text to it by clear embossing (Background Basics:Text Style, Papertrey Ink). A nice subtle effect. The addition of the hemp and a vintage button (Papertrey Ink) keeps with the elegent but rustic feel of the card. I popped all this onto the kraft card base and added a simple sentiment (Autumn Abundance - Papertrey Ink).
Then, I couldn't help it, I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin' Up!) to the edges of the petals. They just needed a bit of wow treatment!!
Now to check out what the Loonie ladies all did with this awesome combo:
Wendy, Maria, Dee, Jewels, Regan, and Char (who did make a card, even though she is up to her eyeballs in remodelling -- I just couldn't find it the first time I looked!)
Awesome work, like usual.
Well, thanks for taking a peek. Leave me a little love and let me know what you think.
