Isn't it a gorgeous shade? Sigh! Love it.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on it yesterday in my fav distress oxide ink and almost immediately upon returning home, sat down in my craft room for a good ole' play. Here's what I ended up with:
- stamps - You've Got This, Very Versailles
- card - whisper white, basic grey, watercolour
- distress oxide inks - speckled egg, weathered wood
- other - Copic markers, Stampin' Blends, texture paste, speckled egg re-inker, spatula, water spritzer, distress collage medium matte (Tim Holtz), Flourish stencil (Tim Holtz), paintbrush, Big Shot, Alphanumeric Tiny Type Lower thinlits (Sizzix), blending brush, Dimensionals, craft foam, distressing tool
I began by laying down the background using my two distress oxide colours, then once that was dry I stamped the script from Very Versailles with speckled egg ink. I stencilled the flourishes using texture paste coloured with speckled egg and while that was drying, stamped and coloured my flower. That was fussy-cut and adhered with Dimensionals. The last touch was the die-cut sentiment, which has two layers of card for extra depth. Because there's no matching cardstock I sponged some speckled egg ink around the edges of my whisper white base.
I'm not 100% happy with it - something about the design doesn't quire sit right with me. It feels like it still needs something but I also don't want to overwhelm it, so I just have to accept to live and learn and move on, lol. We're always our own worst critics, aren't we?
Thanks for calling in. Stay safe.
