I came home from work tonight and thought I'd have a go at making another entry for the latest Clearly Besotted Challenge with the theme 'Seeing Spots' before the time runs out in a few hours.
I went for something a little different this time and used some of my new Versa Color inks to make this subtle design...
I first stamped the 'Leafy Accents' using Laurel Leaf ink, I think its such a beautiful grey/green shade. I then used the 'Building Blocks' set to stamp the dots onto some white card using Ash Rose and Seashell inks. I then used a small flower die from the 'Flower Arrangement' collection to cut the flowers from the dotted card. At this point I really didn't think it was going to work at all. The flowers looked too pale and a bit odd without any centres but I stuck with it and positioned them over the leafy background. Once I gave them some glazed gem centres and added the ribbon it all started coming together. I realised I didn't have any get well cards in my stock so that's what this became, using the sentiment, also from the 'Flower Arrangement' collection.
For a design I almost abandoned halfway through, I actually think it may be a design I return to again :)
