Although I uploaded this Pretty Patterns sample to the party and our STV gallery, I hadn't put the full cards on my blog yet, oops! A couple things to point out: the space in between the two chevron on the stamp is exactly wide enough to accommodate the chevron when stamped again, so it works perfectly as a filler for gorgeous seamless color! I love stamping off this way to use it like two step and create more colorful backgrounds in half the time with half the inks!
This rainbow I made with Memento Love Letter, Tangelo, Dandelion, Cottage Ivy, Bahama Blue, so you only need to ink up the chevron one time with each, shift and stamp a second time, clean stamp and move on to the net color.
To balance this design, I chose to make the banner with Pure Luxury Blue Raspberry to bring that bottom color to the top, and in the same way stamped the balloon from Square Pegs (this bold all occasion set works nicely with the Pretty patterns) in Love Letter and stamped again without re-inking to make the pink one, putting these at the bottom. This pulls your eye back and forth and provides a nice contrast.
Tomorrow, a scalloped card and some tips for that!
Also, tip sheet is upcoming. But instead of having everything all together, I believe I will try to do more step outs with these so you can see photos of the individual elements in action! From there, you can take that and incorporate into any design you choose. Love this set! :)
Hope you have a fun weekend planned, or if not, a relaxing one! Hugs, thank you for visiting today!
