Over at Less Is More the challenge this week is Green and Yellow. I have four rose stamps by PSX in my collection that I love because they all work as individuals and in combinations. For this challenge I went with the ‘spray’. One day, perhaps, I will show you the others in the set.
PSX rose spray stamp
Happy Birthday stamp
Archival Sepia inkpad
A5 white card blank
Pale green Spectrum Noir pen
Snippets of Papermania card
The rose is stamped with sepia ink then painted with watercolour paints. The pale green edge is a Spectrum Noir pen.
The Papermania card was white with green squares so I painted it with a wash of yellow watercolour. On one piece I mounted the rose, on another strip I stamped the greeting in sepia. Both elements were then stuck to the card.
The photo is not quite accurate with the colours, the yellow is much paler in reality!
I confess I usually avoid anything with straight lines on because it does tend to show up every cutting mistake. I can see where the cutter has been less than accurate but I am hoping I can get away with is this time! Because I have used snippets on the card I think I will pop along to the Pixie’s Snippets Playground as well.
Thanks for popping in. Take care.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
