This is for today's COLOR - Krafty Orchid Shadows, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS - CB The Negative Effect, and a previous week SKETCH CHALLENGES. Since I started stamping I have longed for the day that I make one of those cards that makes someone go " oooo". Well maybe today, or maybe not we will see, anyway I am so happy with how this turned out. I stamped fine lace using sage shadow on Kraft layer and matted on orchid. I ran the sage shadow layer through the cuttlebug after inking the neg side w/sage shadow using the script folder. The focal image was stamped with a script background I picked up at Michaels a few yrs back in sage shadow then the stem and leafs. I stamped off 1 time on the solid stamp leaf. The Rose buds were stamped in orchid with the solid stamp stamped off 1 time. I cut 1 of the rose & stem out and popped it up. Ranger Star dust Stickles applied randomly to the buds and leafs. This was then matted on orchid then sage after clipping the alternate corners with a corner punch on all 3 layers and popped up. I do not have any orchid ribbon yet but will be ordering some this week so I had to use what I had as close to it as I could find. The hodge podge hardware is compliments of e3stamper my dd who loves to buy and share with me. The sentiment is from Fancy Flexible Phrases and stamped in orchid. Please feel free to let me know if you held your breath when you saw this. It would do an old woman's heart good. OH MY I just realized you can barely make out he s in Mrs. but it is there.
