Hi everyone! Happy first day of May! Our May challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #22 – May Anything Goes! I got out some Rubbernecker stamps and created a card featuring watercolor stamping on photo paper! OMG, these stamps are amazing! Lots of people can watercolor beautifully… but not me… so I rely on these stamps, lol!
Super fun and easy card. I chose chocolate brown for the card base and layered white and cherry red cardstock panels on it. I die cut some angled stitched border elements on the red panel before adhering them. I stamped the poppies in Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick distress ink and the stems in Walnut Stain and Espresso Truffle ink on the photo paper, and then cut it with a slightly angled stitched oval die. I affixed the panel to the card front on red foam and added White Gloss Crystal Drops and a tiny red seam ribbon bow.
I decorated the inside with leftover strips of the red and chocolate brown cardstock, then stamped the adorable Winnie the Pooh quote. I am absolutely smitten with this, lol!
