I tell you what, the silhouettes in the Simply the Best set just have the coolest, most interesting textures! I stamped this leaf in both Black Onyx and Grass Green, and then colored the flowers with Spectrum Noir markers, LY3, CT4, GB4. I accented the flower centers and around the greeting with adhesive rhinestones.
Next in Beth's Silaika's This & That, I love the three big scroll-y ampersands you have to choose from that work with so many different images, and all the fun words in a font that is both classic and modern. Tons of combinations and orientations to be made for your designs with these greetings! These are stamped in Sweet Mango, Wild Lilac, Ocean Mist and Jelly Bean Green. I stamped off the Ocean Mist ampersands so it would be easy to read the overlapping sentiments. Love the circle accents! To finish, I stamped on the bakers twine from Triple Play Holiday (dotting in whit gel pen to the twine on the colored base) and embossed the bottom corner with a dotted folder to add more texture and match the stamping.
A drop shadow on the ampersand by simply tracing with your marker is fast and really makes these sentiments pop. (Video coming up showing you how to create the stitched vines with the Triple Play Holiday set!) Sentiment stamped in Wild Lilac and Black Onyx and flower and vine in Wild Lilac, Prickly Pear, and Fresh Asparagus on Gina K. Pure Luxury Jelly Bean Green cardstock.
