Today I'm going to show you a card I made when I first got this set from Our Daily Bread Designs. I had also just gotten my new favorite BasicGrey paper pack, Wisteria. When I was flipping through the pages, this gorgeous page jumped out at me and I could just see the wisteria hanging over the stone wall to this old stone structure. I stamped the image on Aquarello Watercolor Paper with Sahara Sand and did a light color wash on it. Then I overstamped the sentiment with VersaMark and embossed with Gold embossing powder. I cut a few extra "stones" out of a second stamping to create a little wall. Then using my Fiskars finger blade I cut out the bottoms of the wisteria that would drape over the image and slipped the image up under the dp. I mounted the dp on a mat of gold and then a base of Mellow Moss. I then decided to use some Flower Soft (also available at the ODBD store) and to get the wisteria color I had to mix some of the light blue and light lavender. The vanilla worked out perfectly for the white wisteria. I also tried my hand at making a few "cut" flowers but dipping the flower soft wire in the glue and then in the mixture. I did two coats of that and tied them into my bow. The leaves are a Sizzix die cut and a Martha Stewart punch. This card will definitely have to be mailed in a box!
I hope you are having a blessed week! I'm picking my Grandkids up tomorrow and they'll be here for several days. What fun! I probably won't get much stamping done while they are here but I do have a few things ready to show you! Thanks so much for stopping by!
