Paisley Print- Miss You from Scraps :-)
Hi Again, Stampers!
Here is the second card that I created using the colors from the CQC153 ColourQ Challenge (from a scrap piece of my own DSP created with the retired Paisley Print background stamp). FYI- This was the second card from the one piece of background paper created using the Paisley Print stamp (if interested, see the previous post for the first card).
Again, you have not had a chance to visit the ColorQ site, I hope you will take some time to check them out! They have a wonderful team of Designers as well as a number of submissions each week that provide so much inspiration !
On Whisper White cardstock, sporadically sponge Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Soft Sky (retired) Classic Ink. After sponging, “spritz” the paper with water to soften the sponged areas and merge the colors a bit. Once the paper is almost completely dry, ink the background stamp using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and stamp over the watercolored area.
Cut a piece of your newly designed background paper (or DSP) and adhere a piece of So Saffron cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Large Scallop Edgelit™ Die to cut two pieces of Whisper White cardstock and line up and emboss with the Delicate Designs (Lace) Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.
Lightly ink the interior of the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder with Calypso Coral Classic Ink ( I used the folder after creating the card for the previous post so it was technically the second embossing after inking the folder) and emboss a piece of Soft Sky cardstock (retired).
Layer all of the elements, add the 1” Chocolate Chip Satin Bow and adhere to a base of Chocolate Chip and again onto So Saffron cardstock.
The flower was created from the embossed background scrap from the previous card (Lacy Brocade inked with Calypso Coral and embossed onto Calypso Coral) and punched with the XL Fancy Flower Punch. Punch another flower using Whisper White and cut apart each petal. Adhere to the petals to the back of the petals on the embossed flower.
The center is the small circle stamp from Lacy & Lovely stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink onto So Saffron cardstock and colored with the Calypso Coral SU! Marker. Punch this center out with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch and layer onto Chocolate Chip cardstock (punched with the 1 3/8” Circle Punch).
Add the sentiment and pearl to finish off the card.
