I was searching on Splitcoaststampers and ran across this fantastic color combo... soft sky, blue bayou, whisper white, and real red! So I promptly saved this combo in my Q on SUColorQ! I decided to use this color combo on today's Sketch Challenge (sc165)on Splitcoast. Then after searching a bit more I found out that this combo was a previous Color Combination challenge (CC150). So off I went to create something fun...
All products are from Stampin' Up! except for the red brads which are from Joann's. I used the flower stamp from the Office Accoutrement set. This is a great image! I stamped it in real red and then in blue bayou. I cut out both. Then along with two flowers I punched out with my Blossoms punch I attached them all together with a silver brad. If you look really close at the brad you can see that I added some dazzling diamonds with my 2-way glue pen. For the paper I used soft sky and blue bayou prints dsp and real red cs. Oh yeah, and whisper white cs too! I added the 5/8" grosgrain ribbon in real red. Last element I added was the red brads with my mat pack and paper piercing tool to get them positioned just right! I also used the same tools to create the stitched photo corner!
Oh and did you know that you have to condition your stamps to get a good solid image! I just found that out! I conditioned the flower before I stamped it, because it was the first time I had used it, and I am pleased with how the image came out! I used Stazon cleaner to condition it!
Thanks for looking and enjoy!
