Well, today I have even more to share with you. I'll be focusing on using Glossy Accents to give these little vases a bit of shine and more of a realistic look. Let me show you what I'm talking about...
First up, how about a bit of an Asian influenced design?! Using the liner image from Backgrond Basics: Retro, I stamped three srips to create a focal point in the bottom corner of a Rustic White card base. Stamped them in Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest. Directly over the lines I stamped three vases, two orchids, and the sentiment in True Black. For perfect alignment of the sentiment I stamped "just a note of" first and then "love" on top, to create the phrase "just a note of love". I could see myself using this sentiment/card as a note to my hubby or just to let someone dear to me know that I care or that I'm thinking of them.This close up shot gives you a good idea of what I was talking about earlier, that shine from the Ranger Glossy Accents makes me want to reach out and touch it, to see if it's real. It's just a neat effect. To finished the card off, I touched up the center of each flower with a bit of Copic marker coloring.Next up, a more softer look. One of my favorite ways to create a single layer card is to layer stamped images and create a unique and interesting focal image.Onto a Rustic Cream card base I started by stamping a scrolly frame, from the Mat Stack #2 Collection, in Sweet Blush. Then stamped three liner vases in Raspberry Fizz. Lastly, in true black, I stamped the sentiment and orchid. Added a touch of Glossy Accents to a single vase and Copic marker to the orchid flowers.
Well, that's it from me today! I hope you've enjoyed and I hope you'll let me know what you think! I'll be back tomorrow with more Gracious Vases. See you then!
