Since I had the watercolor paper and water brushes out, and I had so much fun painting this image that I used in the Stamp Review Crew hop, I decided to do another in a different color palette. I used StazOn Jet Black to stamp the tiered planter, instead of the Saddle Brown used before.
I've really been in a Spring color mood, so this time I used purples and yellows with a gray planter. The gray represents the gloomy gray weather we've been having. (Not really, but it sounded good, right? 😄) Our daffodils are sprouting and will be blooming soon. They're the bright yellow harbingers of Spring here on the farm, and I can't wait!
Because I loved the image so much, and wanted it to be the focal point, I just used a narrow black mat behind it, and popped it up on a wider Gray Granite mat, which was then popped up on the card base. No embellishments - just let the image carry the card.
- Watercolor paper 2 3/8" x 3 1/2"
- Basic Black mat 2 1/2" x 3 5/8"
- Gray Granite mat 2 7/8" x 4"
- Gray Granite card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored & folded at 4 1/4"
What a beautiful card. The photo is so lovely I actually thought it was wall art and if I received that in the mail I would probably frame it. Thanks for inspiring, as I didn't really care for that stamp set until seeing this image singled out. Well done!ReplyDelete
