Here it is:
The sketch is an old one from Mojo Monday that I've been wanting to do. It just wouldn't look right with everything in white. The off-centre LIMette challenge last week helped me get over my affinity for symmetry...notice the slightly off-centre flower to make room for the slit; that's intentional!
As with last week, all products used are from Stampin Up
cardstock: Whisper White, Old Olive DSP
stamps: Artistic Etchings, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
inks: Old Olive, Tempting Turqoise
punches: 1 3/4 and 2 3/4 scallop circles
other: Old Olive ribbon, Square Lattice Textured Impressions
I did stamp over paper flowers but punched ones - snip the scallops to make petals. I can't remember where I saw this technique - sorry can't attribute. In the spirit of honesty, I admit that I intended to sponge around with Old Olive but picked up a sponge still wet with Tempting Turquoise. Well, I do like these combination anyway so went with it and even stamped the centre and sentiment in the accent colour.
Finally, look at these rounded corners. One is from a corner rounder - the DSP. The others are from a scallop scissors. This time, I do remember where I got the technique (see corner of sentiment), Susan at Simplicity by LateBlossom. My "innovation" is cutting a bit more for a more decorative effect.
There are plenty of layers and texture but is this still CAS?
