I'm back making patterns again... this time it's simple stamping with florals.... no masking involved :)
This Fresh Cut Flowers set from Lil Inkers is just perfect for this design as the stylised shapes lend themselves to random patterns in retro colour schemes. With such a busy pattern taking centre stage you only need to add a sentiment tab and you're done :) I find it easier to stamp out a pattern onto a slightly larger piece of card and then trim to size, the white card I used was not the same shade as the card base so I softly inked the edge of the panel with pale green ink and then the difference is not so noticeable :)
My second project is very simple too... I inked up the sweet Lia Griffiths/Hero Arts set called Just for You... another versatile set :) I decided to make a Gift card holder and stamp out a pattern so I could use every stamp in the set....
I took an off cut strip from a sheet of A4 card and scored it at 5 & 17.5cm to make a matchbook style card ..... I added black card to the fold over flap for a bit of contrast to the pattern which tucks behind a semi circular closure from this MFT Blueprints 16 die set.
I used a few bright colours of Prisma pencils for a whimsical design... I'm pleased how it turned out :)
Thanks for stopping by :)
