With today's card, I combined Monday's Clean & Simple challenge (CAS08) and Tuesday's Color Combo challenge (CC212) This is the card I came up with....
CAS was inspired by a particular sketch and the color challenge was to use Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip. I think I rose to this double fun challenge.
For the flowers, I used the flower stamp from SU!'s Best Wishes & More stamp set. I did the Rock-N-Roll technique...ink image with light color first and then 'roll' the outer edges in a darker color. I then punched them out with the 5-Petal Flower punch.Then, I re-punched the flower using the 1-1/4" Circle punch. This just creates a 'different' flower image. I LOVE using my punches for double duty!
A quick tip: Before re-punching, adhere punch piece onto scrap paper to easily insert and hold for punch.
Here's a close up of the finished flowers.
Below is a card where I used the same technique only I re-punched the flower using the same punch (slightly askewed).Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you find inspiration everywhere. Stop by again soon.
