Spring Elegance


 How pretty is this? While I love the DSP included in the Ornate Garden Suite, I really felt that this stunning stamp needed some delicate colour to herald Spring. In these trying times it was a treat to spend an afternoon focused on beautiful colours & stunning imagery.

I stamped the image in VersaMark ink onto Whisper White Thick cardstock & heat embossed with gold embossing powder. This provides a slightly raised outline to make colouring easier.

After "fussy-cutting" the image, I used my Blends markers to colour the leaves & flowers. I kept the colours pale using Pool Party, Balmy Blue & Highland Heather. A touch of Soft Seafoam on the leaves keeps the pastel theme going.

The ornate dies from this suite provide borders & rectangles that mimic handmade lace. The Mint Macaron & gold DSP makes a subtle background layer underneath the Whisper White "doily" - also cut with an ornate die.

This elegant suite of products will be in the new 2020-21 catalog & is available to order now. Check out the details in my online store.
