It's time for another Midnight Madness post. Here is the challenge for this week.
And here is my design based on the sketch.
Cardstock - PopTones
Designer Paper - K & Company
Punch - Martha Stewart
Embossing Folder - Swirls
Flower & Swirl - ippity stamps (Now & Always set IPK-117)
Flower Center - Cuttlebug Quilled Chrysanthemum
Embellishment - Self Adhesive Rhinestones
Inks: Distress Ink- Peeled Paint; Fresco -Vatican Wine
This was fun to make and I decided to use some items that I haven't used in a while. I thought the Quilled Chrysanthemum would be a great addition to the stamped flower center. Also I haven't used some of my embossing folders in a while so I thought the swirls went well with that swirly leaf stamp. Since I stamped the swirly leaf stamp on watercolor paper, after I cut the image out, I wet the paper and let the stamp lose a lot of its definition. I used Vatican Wine from Fresco on the flower. I just love all the Fresco inks. They give an old world flavor to the colors. I will stamp some things up later to show you the fabulous colors you get with these inks.They are a chalk finish dye ink, and I use them well over 50% of the time.
Well that is it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by, see you soon.
