So yesterday I shared the party invitations I made using the Flower Patch stamp set, Flower Fair Framelits (say that three times fast) and the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die.
As I was making those invitations, I wondered what the white scalloped background would look like on white card stock. The latest Paper Players Clean and Simple Challenge gave me just the reason to find out!
As I mentioned in my last post, I had a few scallop die cuts that I messed up by not realizing the top of the die was a little off the card stock when I cut it. For this challenge, I used one of those rejects, trimming it up and adding it to the lower half of the Whisper White card base.
I love the white-on-white look! I think it adds just enough interest and texture without dominating the card or making it too busy.
I originally intended to stamp a sentiment directly on the card stock in the top right corner, but a spider ran across my desk. And I had a glass of wine on my desk. In the ensuing mayhem, I somehow got a small smudge of Tempting Turquoise on the white scallop.
Sooo…enter my Window Word Punch and my favorite sweet sentiment from the Hello Love stamp set to cover the boo-boo. I actually like the empty white space in the corner, so it turned out to be a happy accident.
(In case you’re wondering, both the spider and my wine survived, although the spider was relocated outdoors.)
Inks I used: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz, Old Olive.
Embellishments: Subtles Candy Dots and a sequin from the In-Color Sequin Assortment.
