Stamps: Uniko - Simply Said Blocks II, Flower Power #8
Inks: Distress - Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet; Gina K - Wild Lilac; Versamark
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Gold & Silver Vellum; Gold Embossing Powder; Gems
I got the colour scheme from the current Inkspirational - INK#160 challenge where they want us to use Shades of Purple and Gold, and as I've used vellum on the card, I'm going to submit it to The Flower Challenge - TFC#20 where they want us to use vellum/acetate.
I started by cutting the gold vellum mat and a white panel slightly smaller. I put the stencil over the card, taped it in placed and inked all over with pale lilac, I added some darker purple around the centres of each flower, but you can't really see it in the photo - it's better in real life!! I stamped the little flower in Versamark on silver vellum, heat set it with gold powder and fussy cut them all out. I attached them to the card and added a variety of different colour and shaped purple gems to the centre of each flower. I finished the front of the card by adding a simple block sentiment. On the inside, I cut another gold vellum mat and on the white panel, I stamped a greeting and a few of the outline flower in shades of purple.
I wasn't sure what to make with the next stencil, and then I saw the MUSE challenge - MUSE#265 and it was so easy:
Stamps: Uniko - Birthday Sentiments
Inks: Distress Oxides - Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves; Versafine - Onyx Black; Gina K - Black Onyx
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Pistachio Pudding; Clear Embossing Powder
I made the base from pale green card. I cut a panel of white card smaller and put the stencil on top, taping it into position. I used the same three colours as the party banners on the Muse card and inked the stencil to match the pattern. I finished the front by embossing a bold sentiment in black. On the inside, I cut a panel of white card and stamped a birthday greeting using the three shade of ink and adding a very subtle hint of colour with the stencil.
