Some of you may not know that my husband and I have a plant nursery... so Spring is a biggie around our house. Busy Busy Busy... but it also is so beautiful! I love all "planting" types of images but Ginger from InStyle just really is a fun one for me... guess that is because I am having so much fun with all of the Retro stamps right now.
Hubby looked at and said "hmmm I like it, but really different for you"... so what is different? I guess it is a little different than my normal colors and the vintage roses, that I love BTW.. oh well I like it, I started by coloring Ginger with my Copics, and cutting out with Nestibilities, scalloped with a pink pattern paper from DCWV Garden Party collection. I found a green pattern in the same collection that I loved with the colors I had used for Ginger, very rare I color before picking out the papers, but I was watching TV and not planning... LOL I used a paper piercer and ran lines around the green pattern, then inked to make them pop. All the corners are rounded. Now about those vintage roses, that is a Martha Stewart place card - rounded corners and inked the edges.
A brown Coredinations card stock is used as the base, with a Martha Stewart Double Dot Scallop border punch, to fill the space that was lost with the punch I layered the pink pattern on the backside of the card stock. Really makes the scallops and dots pop. The sentiment - I ordered some "type" stickers recently. I wasn't really happy with them, oh they are the perfect size and color - but they are printed wrong - off to the left of every sticker, makes it hard to line them up and when placed side by side... huge gaps between the letters. Well rather than pitching them, I layered them - I am ok with it - guess I'll keep them and use the rest of them the same way.
Hope you like my "different" card as Hubby called it, more importantly I hope you liked Ginger too... InStyle is really coming out with a whole bunch of really fabulous new images on the 1st... make sure to check it out!
Have a great Monday -
