This one is for the challenge!
Easy as 1-2-3
The challenge on Caardvarks calls for creating a card with 1-embellishment (stickles) 2-patterned papers of course the background but also the 3-flowers are paper pieced and sculpted. Hmm--m okay nothing like stretching out of one's usual styles :-)
The current Stamp Shack's color challenge is pomegranate, olive, black, and tan. Since I don't have any pomegranate paper or ink I gave some serious thought to making some pomegranate tean and pouring it through a coffee filter and using the filter. But then I decided I really wanted to do more with this new plum ink and this combo would work perfectly so I made a slight change to the color scheme.
To make this one I stamp a french script background in Ranger's tea stain distress ink. The resist is made by stamping the flower in embossing ink and adding seafoam white ep then sponging on the Nick Bantock's Damson Plum ink.
