More playing with colour!

Hi there!

Thanks for dropping by.

You might remember last time I was telling you how I started to make one card, and actually ended up with three?
This post I am showing you how to Step It Up, a common term for when you take a basic card and dress it up a bit more, or a lot! *wink*.

So the card to the left was the one I submitted for Freshly Made Sketches #89, some weeks ago now. You will notice that the dimensions of the basic card are smaller too, but the idea was the same.

When I Stepped It Up, I stamped the large blossom from Betsy's  Blossoms onto the large greeting panel, inking once and stamping twice to get two tones of the same shade of Primrose Petals. The greeting from Vintage Verses (retired Sale-a-bration) was stamped in Basic Grey on both, and banners were cut from More Amore DSP (retired) using the Hearts a Flutter Framelits.

The other main difference is the stepped up card has some embellishments added; pearls, Itty Bitty blossom punch flowers, a tiny punched butterfly in Pool Party to pick up that colour in one of the banners and an In-color Dahlia. The edges of the banners were all softened with ink too.

Which version do you prefer?
