Happy Tuesday, friends! How's your week going so far? I hope you'll have time to play along with this week's ColourQ challenge! It took me a while to settle on an idea for these colors, but the latest Mojo Monday sketch gave me the direction I needed. Here's the inspiration:
I recently ordered Verve's Bloom & Grow stamp set, and I just love the layering possibilities for the flowers and the shape of the leaves. I didn't get the coordinating dies yet, but these were relatively easy to cut out by hand.
I started with a kraft base and layered strips of patterned paper from SU's Neutrals DSP pack, plus a strip of kraft cardstock that I impressed with woodgrain. The flowers are layered with foam dimensionals over another strip of woodgrain-impressed kraft cardstock, some Early Espresso cardstock cut with PTI's Medium Scalloped border die, and a strip of ribbon (which matches the red ink much better in person).
The sentiment is from Verve's Dream Big, stamped with Early Espresso.
