Where did those colors come from, you say? Why, HERE of course! Over at SplitcoastStampers there's a whole list of daily/weekly challenges, so if you ever get stumped for an idea of what to stamp, just check out those lists!
I had been playing around with how to do an "out of the box" look with this beautiful flower (from SU's Spring mini catalog due out Thursday, March 1) and found a Coluzzle template I had forgotten about (gee, imagine that!). It had the rectangle box AND scalloped border that fit this design perfectly, I thought.
By placing the clear template over the images I had already stamped (on shimmer white which is the cause of the glare in the photo but oh so beautiful to work with), I was able to see exactly where I wanted to position the rectangle and leave the flower's petals sticking out, to trim around.
I did a little piercing on the caribbean scalloped border and eggplant mat. The celery card base is stamped with the doodle flourish from this set (seriously my favorite set in quite some time!). Lime green Stickles highlight the flower, which was watercolored with eggplant reinker. The flower and scalloped piece is popped up on dimensionals.
Thanks for looking! I hope to have a few more birthday cards to post this week . . . they're something we all can use, right?!!
