play in Di's playground and to join in with a new challenge Dynamic Duos. This new challenge has had my attention from the start because I struggle so much getting colour combinations right off my own back. So anything to help me in the right direction is very welcome :) Well, I love pink and kraft. It's one of my very favourite colour combinations. But I'm a bit scared of grey and have loads of grey card stock that I haven't even touched so thought it was time to face my fears!
Here we go then:
The beautiful stamp is from Simply Soft, a hostess set which you can get for an absolute steal if you host a qualifying party (real or virtual) or place an order of £150 or more. It's a two-step set, but this time, instead of overstamping, I coloured in the blooms directly with a Regal Rose marker pen. I coloured the leaves by scribbling on a craft sheet and then picking up the colour with my blender pen and adding it a little bit at a time for a softer look. The pot was created by cutting a pot shape (by eye) and then embossing it with my lattice embossing folder, adding a snippet of Regal Rose patterned paper and a linen thread bow for detail. This was then mounted on Basic Grey card and again onto my Whisper White base. The hexagons are snippets from the new Twitterpated Designer Paper Series and the sentiment is from Petite Pairs (that most beautiful of sentiment sets). All finished off with three rhinestones.
