There is something about a small, scripty die that I like. I think because it is small and not in your face, it makes a more sophisticated statement.
The card I am sharing with you today was designed around a small script die, the “Bravo” die by @simonsaysstamp. I like how thin the font is, that it’s all in lower case and the overall size of the word.
I also used the Strangeness stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I used the single flowers from this set. I stamped the flowers on Canson XL watercolor cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I colored the flowers with my Tombows and a waterbrush.
For the background, I used the Gingham Background stamp. It is the perfect size pattern! It adds a little pizazz, but doesn’t take over the card. For a small accent, I used the thin border from the Frames die set. Both of these items are from Simon Says Stamp.
As I said before, I colored the flowers using my Tombow markers. I used 526, 676, 725, 985 and 055. I just scribbled on the flower and moved the colored around with my waterbrush.
I stamped the background stamp with Versamark ink and used WOW white embossing powder. I used Bundled Sage Distress Oxide and didn’t like it with my floral colors, so I lightly went over it with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide and liked it much better. I cut a thin frame out of the background and used a scrap piece of white cardstock and cut a thin frame out of it as well.
I adhered both parts of the gingham background and the thin, white frame and adhered it to a white card base. I cut my bravo sentiment out twice from white cardstock and adhered it together using Glossy Accents. I then put a layer of Glossy Accents over the top of my sentiment. I arranged my flowers on the card base and attached with my ATG Gun and Pop Dots.
I used some Recollection sequins to finish off my card.
I have really been enjoying the Simon Says Stamp releases of late. They are right up my alley!
Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate it.
