I finally settled on this:
I was inspired by Donna’s graphic-style card. Like Donna, I was inspired by the bold vibrant flower on her shirt. I was also captivated by the ‘rivet’ patterning set within the geometric shapes on her shorts.
I masked and stamped the background using a dots border stamp to reflect those rivets. I absolutely love how the background turned out!! I wanted to capture those fantastic colours of her shirt, but limit it to one main flower, so I inked up my old Quint-Essential flower stamp in Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo and Pumpkin Pie. I fussy cut the orange layer, but punched out the remaining layers and circles.
The sentiment was also stamped in Moonlight White, and subtle green pearls added to finish it off.
That’s it! Thanks for visiting!
