For you

I saw the great colour combination at Colour Q  and wanted to take part, I wanted to combine it with a sketch, but it took me a while to locate one so i popped over to Mojo Monday

Here is the Colour inspiration:

And the sketch:

Here is what I came up with:

I stamped the background piece with the petal parade stamp set that is available during Sale-a-Bration when you spend £45. I have seen loads of people do the one sheet wonder technique and have been enjoying doing it recently, this stamp set really works for this.

I wanted to use the Simple Stem set that is available in the occasions catty, but wasn't sure where to start. I original stamped the flower that co-ordinates with the Secret Garden Framelits, I didn't know how to then incorporate it on my project. I then thought I can use white embossing powder on real red card stock and used the delicate doilies stamp set, punched with the 2 1/2" circle. I then got some pacific point card stock and layered some soft sky card stock, which I then stamped the simple stem and stamped the flower in real red on the soft sky card stock. It didn't pop so I then stamped the flower again and grabbed my paper snips to cut it out and layer onto.

I got some fresh prints designer paper stack from the occasions catty, which has coastal cabana and real red in. I opted for the wavy coastal cabana for the ribbon, followed by using the 'for you' sentiment from chalk talk punched with the 1 1/4" scallop circle. I then added some rhinestones as it really needed it. Then the stem that I had stamped in soft sky, just didn't work so I got my coastal cabana marker and went over it. 

Thanks for popping by and happy stamping...
