FS502 - Thinking of You

This week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper is Gail (mamaxsix). She has a large gallery and one of the things I noticed is that she often re-uses stamp images. I love to see how the same supplies can be used over and over again to create completely different projects!

I chose this Mother's Day card as my inspiration:

I was inspired by Gail's:
-flourish element
-inlaid die technique

I changed:
-direction of the flourish
-placement of sentiment
-added distress ink techniques

I used:
-Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves die
-Distress inks (smooshing)
-Red Gold KGT
-Perfect Pearls Shimmer Mist (Biscotti - see the shimmer in the close up below)
-Hero Arts sentiment

Just lovely. Are the leaves inlaid with the white piece?

Sheila H said...

Just beautiful!

Lindsey said...

I <3 the beautiful, smooshed, misted branch. WOW!

TK said...

Beautiful card -- love that stem, and that gorgeous shimmer!

Maxine D said...

What a wonderful textural colour on the leaves Ardyth - love the way you have trimmed all but one leaf, and let it hang over the edge of the base.

I love this die and how it covers the entire length of the card! No need for anything else other than a sentiment! Gorgeous inking technique!

Ardyth, this is just so lovely! Love the smooshing technique you used on the leaves.
