Painted Petals in Blackberry Bliss
This card was inspired by this post by Vicky Hayes. Vicky is a UK Stampin' Up demo who uses SU! products in fun and unexpected ways - I'm always inspired when I visit her blog.
This time I was inspired by Vicky's use of Painted Petals to build a box. The blossoms are shown without the leaves, and have pops of orangey-yellow. Turns out it's DP, not stamping, but I knew that the look could easily be replicated with the coordinating stamp set.
I used Blackberry Bliss ink and cardstock, and one of the sentiments from the set. To introduce the yellow and a graphic element, I masked and sponged the end of my sentiment strip in Adirondack Summer Sunshine.
