Did you plan your vacation? Or are you just back? And if you could choose a destination where would you go? Well Italy sounds romantic for me, and I am in love with pizzas and pastas… so let’s go:
Pisa here I come… I love working with the color red – white – green, it’s a great combo. So I was beginning with a paper collage on my background. I colorized it with Lindy’s stamp gang flat shot. Then I distress the edge with pine needle distress ink and I used a small cup to stamp circles and my palette knife to stamp some lines on my background. I spattered white ink on my colored and stamped background.
Italian in colors, isn’t it? I visited Italy several times, it was always at the summer time, so what I remember is the great sunny days. My next layer’s background had to be yellow to remind me to all the sunny day, I used mustard seed distress ink, and by the side I used France Papillon’s design cube to add some texture with wild honey distress ink. Janet Klein’s Pisa I stamped with black archival ink. While it was drying I stamped “proof of fun” from France Papillon’s barcode text with pine needle distress ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. On top of my text I added still a lovely heart from Jo Capper-Sandon’s hearts cubed.
Now I had the sun as yellow, the text as green, the heart as red, and it wouldn’t be my card if I don’t add some stitches, I used white thread, because white was still the missing color from my Italian composition.
Finally I added some metal embellishment to hold the upper part of my card to the lower one.
Hope you had or going to have a gorgeous vacation this summer!
I am adding my card to Stampotique designer’s challenge travel/vacation.
