Flourishing Vases Thank you card

AALL and Create Tracy Evans Flourishing Vases and Digital Bubbles stencil

Hi everyone. I am very pleased to be back on the Simon Says Stamp Monday blog in the Designer Spotlight this month. For my first week the theme is Thanks / Thanksgiving - featuring products from AALL and Create.

I used Flourishing Vases stamp set by Tracy Evans and the Digital Bubbles stencil along with paints from PaperArtsy  (I used Bougainvillea, Forget Me Not and Mulled Wine.)
For the background, I add a couple of colours to my Gel Plate and brayered. I placed the stencil on top, lightly pressed and then removed. I then took my print off the plate. I used a similar background for the vase and flowers but in lighter colours.

I fussy cut the flowers and vase so I could raise them slightly.

'Thank you' was stamped in 2 colours using my stamp platform.  The stamp is from Darkroom Door.
Do pop over to the Simon Says stamp blog where there is, as always, loads of inspiration from their talented design team. And if you join the challenge there is a $50 voucher for one lucky winner.

Thank you so much for your visit, see you next week!

  2. Nikki, what a glorious mix of purples!! Love the color layers, and fun design of the vase with flowers. Welcome aboard for the month!! hugs, Maura

  3. Fantastic to see you in the Spotlight over at SSS and what a wonderful card to kick things off. The rich plum and aubergine colours are just right for the season and the textural detail in that gelli print is just amazing. Looking forward to the rest of the month.
