Stamps: Uniko Studio - Pure Florals Chrysanthemum, Simply Said Birthday
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Wild Wisteria, Melon Mambo; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Wild Wisteria; Wink of Stella - Clear
I love this big, bold chrysanthemum and it works perfectly on a clean, simple card. I stamped the outline image in purple ink and the solid image in pink. This two step stamping is really easy and the stamps line up really well. I think I'm addicted to my Wink of Stella brush - I covered the whole flower with a layer of clear sparkle - looks gorgeous when the sun shines on it!!! I finished the front with a simple sentiment in bold black. On the inside I cut a mat layer of purple design paper and on the white panel stamped the small chrysanthemum with lots of space for a message.
I got the colours from this week's Fusion Challenge - FUSION#30 and I'm submitting this card to The Paper Players - PP#236 as they want us to make a clean, simple floral card. We have a couple of Guest Designers joining us this month - Amy and Emily - do check out their inspiration cards, along with the cards from the rest of the team. Here's a close up of all the sparkle on the flower:
We have prizes too!! The DT will pick an overall winner who will get a £20 Gift Voucher for use at the shop, plus an invitation to join us as Guest Designer. The DT also picks a Top 3, each of whom will get a £5 Gift Voucher. There will also be a random draw for those who use the sketch - the winner of this draw will get a £10 Gift Voucher. Remember you don't have to use Uniko Studio stamps to join in with the challenge, although we love it you do! You have until Friday 3rd April 8.00am GMT (3am EDT) to play along. Have fun!!!
