Forever and Always with Basic Pattern Decorative Masks. I am on a bit of a roll with the Forever and Always Bundle this week. This is the third post I have shared using this bundle this week. I am really enjoying using it, it is so much more than a Valentine’s set and today is definitely NOT a Valentine Card, it is a simple floral card that would be perfect for so many occasions.
I decided to break out my Basic Pattern Decorative Masks to add a bit of a subtle background to help ground the florals I was going to use. Just a few swirls with a Blending Brush and Rococo Rose Ink gave me just the look I was after. I trimmed this layer to a slightly smaller size than I generally use, to allow more of the Rococo Rose layer to show through.
Next I simply stamped a few of the florals, buds and leaves and coloured these with Rococo Rose and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I didn’t do any particularly precise blending, I simply followed the guidance from the stamps. I added the Dark Blend first, following the darker areas from the stamps, then added the Light Blend over the top. As I said, simple blending, this was never going to be a long and elaborate make, it was specifically meant to be quick. The longest part of this make was to do the die cutting for all the small elements!
Having got all the pieces ready, it was a simple job to place them on the bottom right corner of the card, adhering the pieces with liquid glue and Mini Dimensionals. I used a Smoky Slate Card Base, it is a good grey to mix with Rococo Rose and is much softer than using White Card. The finishing touch? A little blending on the inside of the card too, just as a mirror of the pattern on the outside.
