I have a goal to make a whole suite of projects from the Floral Boutique collection, and since there is no time like the present to start, I decided that one of the projects would satisfy the As You See It Challenge Sketch for this week:
I love this sketch! Amanda really aced this one! There are so many possibilities for it and if you go to the As You See It Challenge Blog, you can see the awesome designs by my fellow Design Team members!
- When I first looked at the sketch, I thought of embossing flowers in white on Crumb Cake cardstock, but then decided that it would be too close to the sketch to be really creative. Instead, I decided to start my Floral Boutique projects and got out the Floral Phrases stamp set and my Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper. I just love that DSP! I've seen so many things on Pinterest in similar navy and white floral designs. It's really trending right now. It reminds me of the old Wedgewood china.
- I stamped the floral image from the Floral Phrases stamp set on the top of the navy panel and then turned the paper 180 degrees and stamped it again, both in Versamark Ink. In between the two I stamped the floral border stamp, also in Versamark. I added White Stampin' Emboss Powder to the panel, tapping off the excess and then heat set it all using the Heat Tool. Don't forget to use your Embossing Buddy before stamping as it prevents the embossing powder from sticking in places where you don't want it.
- I used the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch to add the whimsical rounded corners on opposite sides of the navy panel.
- That great sentiment from Floral Phrases is stamped in Night of Navy on a 3/4" Whisper White strip and is mounted used Dimensionals.
- A little bow of Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine adds another touch of whimsy to the project.
I am hoping to have the rest of the projects from this suite ready for Monday's post. Have a great weekend!
