Addicted to Stamps and this week the theme is Addicted to BLUE. My card is definitely blue!!! I've started off by making up a base card of 6"x6" and the stamp set I've used is Stampin Up Bordering on Romance which is such a useful stamp set. I've gone a bit mad with SU goodies on this card as I've also used the Framelits Labels Collection, Edgelits Adorning Accents and Textured Impressions Embossing Folders Adorning Accents. - inks used are Whisper White and Pacific Point. I started off using the dotty border stamp in Whisper White and then die cut and embossed the edge of the card. The flower border was stamped in the same ink. On matching blue card I've also stamped the main flower stamp in Whisper White. I've die cut this using the Framelits Labels and matted onto blue mirri and then a piece of white which has been stamped in Pacific Point using the smaller flower elements. I've used the VersaShadow Technique to make everything "pop". It's very easy to do - all you need is a VersaMark pen and, using the smaller end, outline your images. This will stay darker than your base card. It works well on most dark cards except for black but it's worth experimenting with some cardstock before you start. I've added some gems and a piece of dotty ribbon from my stash. Sorry for the reflection on the bottom part of the mirri card - it's almost impossible to photograph without this happening!
Thanks for dropping by - hopefully you will all have a go at this challenge and I look forward to visiting your blogs.
