Quick Card with Bamboo Beauty. I have been itching to use this stamp set for a while and I am finally doing so. This is a really quick card to put together too. I used three ink pads, although two would probably do, and two colours of card, in addition to the Very Vanilla.
I started by stamping the two bamboo trunks in Crumb Cake, overlapping very slightly so they looked more intentional. the leaves at the base are in Old Olive, again I added some movement to them by having them lean out a little. The final colour is Early Espresso, which I used for the sentiment, but you could use Old Olive if you have limited colour options.
I wanted to add a little ‘something’ as the image looked a little plain as it was. Then I remembered the Gold Fine Art Ribbon which has that wonderful rustic look to it, perfect for this project. I sandwiched this between the Old Olive and Crumb Cake mats.
Of course I then started looking for more embellishments, this time to bring the focus back to the sentiment. OK, so I know they are technically Pale Papaya, but the Genial Gems in the ‘orange/pink’ shade are perfect on Very Vanilla, adding a little sparkle without being too over the top.
I seem to be in a bit of a ‘three mat’ phase at the moment, and this project is no different. For me it adds something special, but is not an expensive addition. So what do you think, do you like this project? I would love to hear from you. Did you even notice this stamp set in the Annual Catalogue? I think it is easy to miss, but I have lots of ideas for it, so keep your eyes peeled. In fact I may use it for my #SimpleStamping Saturday project this week.
