I made my own background by using the rectangular solid image from the stamp set. I stamped each color twice without re-inking. I was not overjoyed with the result, but the more I stare, the more I like it. It is different and somewhat artsy. What do you think?
Highland Heather A-2
Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)
Tuxedo Black Memento
Gorgeous Grape 3/8" Sheer Ribbon
Basic Rhinestone Jewels
First, I stamped my background as I stated above.
I then stamped the Hydrangea using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. It did not make a very dark impression, or my background colors were still too dark.
So, I grabbed the Hydrangea dies and ran a scrap of vellum through the flower part of the hydrangea. It die cut the flower, and half-cut/embossed the petals. I colored them in using my Highland Heather marker. I then adhered the vellum onto the hydrangea using liquid glue.
I then used my Crumb Cake and Old Olive markers to color in the stem and outline the leaves.
I added a bit of sheer ribbon. I tied a knot and taped the ends on the back of the panel. I then adhered the panel to the card base.
I stamped my sentiment and added a few rhinestones. The other Whisper White panel was for the inside of the card.
