Perfectly Paired

Meet "Perfectly Paired". My card for the Inspiration challenge at This week we were asked to visit the Pinterest pages of "Polly P" who is also a member of  Splitcoaststampers where she is known as "peeps321".

My inspiration came from this floral image under Polly's "Card Ideas" board, which I was so taken with.

It may appear that I cased the card, but I made several changes, which I will note for you. First, I added layers to the card, being the background which uses Penny Black's Script stamp on Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper along with Altenew ink in Silver Stone. I also used different stamp sets from the original.

I then did a second layer, also using Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper, where I stamped the floral using Altenew's Perfectly Perfect stamp set.

Continuing with the stamp I masked off the flower and started stamping using Best Buds "leaves" stamps along with paper masking pieces to protect the leaves as I went along with the stamping. I then watercoloured the flower and leaves using Daniel Smith watercolours.

When the piece was dry I fussy cut it then attached it to my background piece using Art Glitter glue.

I wanted a deeper colour around the top edges of the card so I brushed on Peacock Feathers distress oxide inks. I then added big splatters using Daniel Smith Rose of Ultramarine watercolour.

To finish up I attached the watercoloured backgrounds to a Gina K Designs cardbase in Tranquil Teal. I am not sure what I will be doing for the inside, so for now I have simply attached a piece of Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you have enjoyed this card.

See you next time.
