Kristina's Color Inspiration #21
Ok - so Principal's day is Friday. The high school I work at has co-principals (as in 2!!!) and 1 Vice Principal so I made 3 cards tonight. I really struggle with masculine cards and used retired stuff on the male principal and male VP's cards so here's the one for our fantastic Principal (obviously a woman with these colors...)
I also tried to take an artsy picture so you'll have to let me know which one you prefer. I'm totally loving this card! I love the technique on the flowers which is adapted from a Convention Make and Take idea. I never thought about using the daubers directly onto the rubber but I LOVE it! I inked the stems first (removed ink in flower areas with a baby wipe) then sponged on Regal Rose and finished it off with a bit of Rose Red at the ends of the petals. I think I'll try simplifying it for a workshop soon! I loved the way it turned out and that Top Note die is just to die for (no pun intended). Have a fantastic day! Thanks for another great combo Kristina!
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Absolutely Fabulous & Polka Dot Background (I'm so obsessed with SU! background stamps right now...love to clear emboss this one but I didn't do that tonight)
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, VersaMark
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Accessories: Sizzix Top Note Die (SU! Exclusive die), sponge daubers, Scallop Edge Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Narrow Rose Red Grosgrain Ribbon (mine seems just a shade too dark for Rose Red...anyone else with this problem?), left over stamp remnants to pop up the Top Note die part (Whisper White portion of the card)
P.S. I LOVE COMMENTS on my tiny little blog so please leave some!
