Technostamper Challenge 226

June 23, 2012

I think my mojo is still on holidays, I am finding it difficult to be creative at the moment.  So, to help things along I decided to play along with MaryJo’s sketch this week.

I stamped the En Francaise Background onto Pretty in Pink card using Pretty in Pink ink, sponged the edges with the same ink and attached it to scored and folded Whisper White card.  I punched Wisteria Wonder card using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and attached a piece behind each long edge of strips of Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper to create a very narrow and dainty scallop border.  I stamped “best wishes” from the Sincere Salutations stamp set into the bottom right hand corner of the Pretty in Pink card using Wisteria Wonder ink.  I stamped the tea cup image from the Tea Shoppe stamp set using Wisteria Wonder ink onto Whisper White card, inking only the images on either end.  I stamped the middle tea cup using Pretty in Pink ink onto scrap Whisper White card, cut it out and attached it with a dimensional between the Wisteria Wonder tea cups.  The Whisper White card is edged with Wisteria Wonder card punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, the same as the designer paper.  I attached the image panel to the card front using dimensionals.

Here is a close up of the cups and maybe you can see just a little of the background stamping.  You can also see the tiny scallop edge that is created by using the Dotted Ribbon Border Punch.

I’m not perfectly happy with this card so I’d love to hear your suggestions for improving it.

Bye for now, Kris.

    I wouldn’t change a thing about this beautiful card. I will have to try your color combo even though I seldom use pink and lavender together. Your proportions are right on and the colors pop with the white.
