I love these mauve shades that Dynamic Duos is challenging us with this week. They remind me of bunches of hanging Wisteria, Iris, Clematis and all things floral.
I've finally used my Secret Garden Stamp Set and matching Dies to cut the blooms and leaves, after having them on my shelf from when they were released - how long ago? Trouble was, I loved the stamp, wanted to make all the gorgeous things I'd seen on blogs and Pinterest but had too many other stamp sets, and not enough time. Feeling awfully embarrassed about this, I vowed to break it open as soon as possible, and today was that day.
As well as Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum I have introduced Basic Gray and a little Whisper White.
One of the flowers has been stamped in Versamark onto lovely thick vellum, by Stampin' Up! of course, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. It has been coloured with a Perfect Plum Stampin' Write. The other flowers were stamped onto coloured card, in the same colour. There are some other smaller punched blossoms scattered about and all finished with pearl centres. Curly Cute stamp set has greetings in a lovely, fancy font which seemed to suit these flowers.
