Crazy Crafters Blog Hop- CASEing Wendy Cranford


Hi !



Today's card has been inspired by our fabulous creator & guest Wendy Cranford
I chose this gorgeous card of Wendy's to CASE



 How to Stamp A Floral Background
#Wendycranford


I just love how vibrant and fun this card is. Wendy shows her love of having the main focal in a corner so well with this design. I wanted to make something similar, but also to make it mine.

I chose my colours from the #PPA315 colour challenge by Michelle Gleeson.



I also thought I would enter this card into the Stamp,ink,paper challenge #SIP062 as it fits the sketch above !




Here is my card

'JUST A NOTE'

#Flourishingphrases #KOCreationscards #Resistinking #Enamelshapes #Blending

I am also a lover of having the focal stamped design in a corner, then stamping the image off the page a little. I chose to do my image using white embossing powder on Whisper White card stock and use the resist inking technique.
 For the ink blending over the embossed image I used Old Olive at the bottom, followed by So Saffron and finished at the top with Dapper Denim.
I coloured the flowers with So Saffron on top of the blending process just to make them stand out a little more. I also did the same with the leaves using Old Olive.
For the dots I used the smallest circles from the enamel shapes in Dapper Denim.

I wanted a sentiment tag, but I didn't want to cover any of the card and it's beautiful colour. So to keep the colour unbroken, I decided I would use a small rectangle of acetate 'Window Sheet' stamped with 'Whisper White' craft ink. This made the writing stand against out from the background, plus coordinated with the card perfectly. I cut to length a small strip of 'Dapper Denim' Washi Tape from the Moroccan Designer Washi Tape set. I topped that with a bow of Thick 'Whisper White' Bakers Twine.

I also wanted the pretty colours to follow through to the inside of my card. So I did almost the same as the front but kept the ink blending to the bottom right of the paper, leaving a large area clean for a personal message.

    1. Thanks Satomi...The blending is still new to me & I am no where near a pro at it yet.... but I am getting there :-)
      I am not that clever hahahaha it was a total fluke to combine the 3 challneges into one, the Blog Hop was all I had planned to start with, then found the PPA challenge and the SIP as well. They fit perfectly for both, I was a bit stunned!. Just edited my blog when I found the other two challenges hehehe

  19. Stunning card. I love how the leaves are in the green and the flowers are in the yellow section, Perfectly situated and accented with a bit of additional ink and a blender pen. It was brilliant to place the sentiment on the acetate window sheet and the piece of washi tape is perfect. Love, Love, Love the result. Thanks for sharing your creativity with the Pals this week.
