This was a nice & easy card that came together quite quickly. I've really been liking dimension on cards, having areas popped up with foam tape (stampin' dimensionals, foam dots....) It's one of the cards you can't mess up on, seriously! Ink up your stamp and stamp away without reinking to get that faded out effect. Once you're done with the green, grab a light brown and add a few more. :) I used a marker to color the one stamp with the flower heads and tried to position it in the center.... here's a peek:
Stamps: The Art of Life, Short & Sweet
Paper: Bashful Blue, whisper white, creamy caramel, DS Fall Flowers
Ink: Old Olive, Always artichoke, Creamy Caramel, bashful blue marker
Accessories: taffeta ribbon (SU), hodgepodge frame, stampin' dimensionals, cuttlebug & folder
I'm in need of boy birthday cards... so I'll be trying to play with that a bit today -- after I'm done my chores! LOL.
