Love Grows Here / FMS #183
This is a Baby card that I created today using this weeks Freshly Made Sketch #183. I was tempted to add more "stuff" but refrained myself. I'm really trying to produce more simple, uncomplicated cards. I am succeeding a little and hope to become more comfortable with keeping it simple.
The stamp set I used was one I bought quite awhile ago from Taylored Exressions, Love Grows Here. It always makes me smile, but I have been challenged when it comes to coloring it. Unfortunately, today was not much better, but I pressed in. I think I stamped and colored the image 7 or 8 times. UGH! My final attempt was used, but I'm still not completely happy with the results, but used it anyway. I would love your opinion and suggestions.
The technique I settled on using:
- Stamping the image with Black Memento Ink on SU Shimmer White paper
- Adding clear embossing powder which was then heat set
- Colored the image with SU inks and the Aqua painter
Other SU products used: Sweet Dreams DSP with matching buttons, Bitty Banner Framelit dies, Chevron EF
Have a wonderful evening and I hope you can do something CRAFTY!
