I hope you enjoyed the weekend and Saturdays Blog Hop to celebrate World Card Making Day 2015.
I love taking part in the blog hops and I can't believe that was my 8th Blog Hop since my blog went live in July 2014. Its great having the opportunity to showcase my work alongside talented demonstrators. I regularly find inspiration from them and love seeing techniques I've never tried before.
After looking at everyone's cards on yesterdays blog hop, I now need to try the Bokeh technique and also stamping over an embossed image.
I wasn't sure what to do with this background stamp so I decided just to stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock and take it from there. I chose Marina Mist ink. When I think of lined note pads this colour immediately came to mind.
Seeing the image stamped onto the cardstock, I decided not to go overboard with any other stamping or embellishments as I really liked the look as it was. It reminded me of simple cards you might find in somewhere like Paperchase.
I stamped the sentiment True Friend from the Endless Thanks stamp set between the lines of the note pad, the photopolymer stamps made it really easy to position the stamp. I then added Thank You from the same stamp set at the top.
I still really feel it needs something else but I am not sure what. Perhaps a flower or butterfly in the bottom right hand corner?
