Graceful Garden Duo

March 1, 2018

I have had the Graceful Garden stamp set for a very long time and although I love it I haven’t used it until I created this card.  I stamped the background stamp from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto the lower left hand side of scored and folded Thick Whisper White card using Pool Party ink.   I cut a strip of Petal Garden Designer Series paper and attached it to the left hand side of the card front.  I cut an oval from Whisper White card and a scalloped oval from Pool Party card using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and attached them to each other and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the large flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using Pool Party and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends The flower is cut out and attached to the oval with a couple of small dimensionals behind the bottom of the stem.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the small floral image onto scrap Whisper Whtie card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured it with the Pool Party and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and cut it out.  The flower is the only embellishment on the inside of the card.

I wanted to create another card but this time colouring the flower using the Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive ink pads and an Aqua Painter.  I wanted to see which colouring technique gave the best finished look and guess what, I love them both.  The second card is created in exactly the same way, I stamped the images in Basic Black Archival ink and coloured them using Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive ink and an Aqua Painter.

Which one do you like best?  The Pool Party flower coloured with the Stampin’ Blends or the Sweet Sugarplum flower coloured with ink and an Aqua Painter?

Bye for now,

Kris

    I am thinking that you achieved more contrast using the Aquapainter. But I love the Pool Party rose, I would have never thought of that!
