Curtain Call....Thinking of Tango
Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!
Today's card is made with this weeks color challenge on Stacey's Stamping Stage. This weeks colors are Bordering Blue, Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun and Whisper White.
I used the Awash with Flowers stamp set. I stamped just the outline stamp of the flowers with black stazon onto watercolor paper. I colored the flowers in with my aqua painter and tangerine and summer sun ink. I did add a bit of old olive for the leaves and stem and colored in the BG with bordering blue. I cut this out with the top note die and then cut off the bottom and side. I cut two top notes with the bordering blue and pieced together the mat.
I liked the main image, but then I was a bit lost as what to do with the rest of the card. I tried a white base and thought it looked too stark so I then cut a base with the watercolor paper and like that. I wanted to keep the BG layers fairly minimal so I just used some strips of the three colors. The sentiment is form the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. I stamped it with black stazon onto the tangerine strip, I then pierced along punch along the strip. I used the scallop trim edge punch along the bottom strip of bordering blue. The summer sun DS paper is from the retired Good Morning Sunshine paper pack. I added a piece of the top note that I had trimmed away on the main panel at the top. I finished it off with three orange rhinestones.
I had liked this card when I first made it but after looking at it awhile I am not so happy with it now......not sure why??
Oh well, that is all from me today, THANKS so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
