Raspberry Suite color challenge #13
Hi there!! Sorry for my lack of posting all week.... I am totally blaming it on the summer!!! Also it's fair week here so it's been busy, busy, busy!!! I finally managed to find some time to finish up my raspberry suite challenge #13. When I first saw the colors, my first thought was "oh great, the dreaded red"!! Those of you who follow know that I really have a hard time with red. I can't help it, I'm not a red person!! What is so funny is every time I use it, I feel like it is starting to grow on me!!! The only red ink I own is riding hood red from stampin up.... I may have to break down and buy the pure poppy just for a bit of variety. On to my card...... I had to use my new in bloom flower again.... I LOVE this flower... oh yea I said that in the last post!! I can't help it!! You can do this flower in any color and it will look great! I stamped mine on berry sorbet cardstock with red riding hood ink three times and cut it out in three different layers and then adhered them together with dimensionals. Colored over the whole flower with my clear spica glitter pen. The leaves were stamped in spring moss ink onto spring moss cardstock and cut out. The white shape I cut using cricut & my storybook cartridge. I layered that onto a scrap of spring moss stamped with a damask designs background stamp. Layered those onto a pure poppy bitty boxes scrap edged with my apron lace punch. I then layered it all onto a white card that I zipped thru my cuttlebug with the damask folder. I added a few berry sorbet buttons for a little decoration and Voila!! finished card. I am still working on the perfect picture taking spot since I moved my studio.....
Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
