Congrats to Taylor! What a terrific gallery! I chose one from last month, Going Swimming. I kept the layout and tied ribbon, but I changed the images, colors and used a buckle instead of buttons.
All images are Sparkle N Sprinkle. For my cards, I made two different color versions of the same card, then I couldn't decide which bg color I liked best, so here are both. The backgrounds were both done with pigment inks from the same collection. I used a little more coral and apple green on the pink card and more of the fresh green and amber on the green card. The floral background was stamped with the black ink and it was carefully cut out. The remainder of the background was used for the middle layer.
The sentiment was stamped first with a combination of the same pigment inks. After lining it up with a SAMJ, I over stamped it using the black ink and die cut it. The ribbons were colored with markers to match and I tied them through the die cut buckles. The flowers in the backgrounds were colored in with the white gel pen and glitter was added to them. The finished cards measure 5.5 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for looking! I confess, this was blogged a while ago but it somehow never made it here: The Write Stuff.
