Welcome back to the second day of reveals for the May release at Ink to Paper! Today, we are introducing you to Feathered Friends 11 dies + Into the Blooms II dies + Vase Collection stamps and dies + Perfect Pair: Commodities stamp set and dies.
Birds and flowers always make me happy, so today's stamps and dies fill that bill. I decided to do a whimsical look and paper piece the owl with patterned papers.
The flowers and leaves were die cut from white card stock then color blended with brushes.
STAMPS: Just Sentiments: Summer
INK: Classic Kraft, Cocoa Bean, Dark Chocolate, Pale Peony, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Simply Chartreuse
PAPER: Share Your Heart patterned paper, Bitty Big: Soft Stone, Fine Linen, Limeade Ice, Sweet Blush, Lemon Tart, White.
DIES: Feathered Friends 11 die, Into the Blooms II, Border Bling: Twigs.
I decided to pair this lovely new vase with an older set - Wild Fields. I wanted to keep the arrangement very open and airy to allow the background more room to peek through.
Rather than use the background stamp that would add color to the entire vase, I wanted it to look more like the light was hitting it and gave it a shaded appearance by color blending. I white embossed the Antique Wishes frame so it would serve as an ink resist then color blended the yellow ink over it.
This large sentiment set is absolutely awesome and I love the large beautiful font words paired with the smaller sentiments - my favorite way to add words to a card! This will cover nearly every occasion you can dream of!
