I recently got a Papertrey Ink order and the Rosie Posie stamp set so I had to play right away (there's something about brand new stamps that beg to be inked up!) and here is the first of 2 cards I created:
I used some of the grid cardstock from PTI as my card base and stamped the small flower and one of the background stamp elements in the grid spaces. Yes, I actually cut one of the stamps apart so I would have a single image to work with. The colors are Smokey Grey (Memento) and Creme Brulee (CTMH). The paper was a strip leftover from another project that I folded and adhered to the card with scor-tape.
The main flower was stamped and highlighted with a colored pencil to add a little shading. I added the focal piece to the card front with foam tape and a band of gray ribbon along the top edge of the pleated paper.
The background is a little busier than I anticipated but I like the overall results. I will be back soon with another Rosie Posie card that has a totally different look. See you soon!
