Playful Petals

Take a little Tea Party designer paper, cut according to a Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge, add a layered image stamped with a stamp from the Playful Petals set and get a cheerful, spring card. I stamped the flower with Basic Gray ink four different times, colored the images with blender pens, left one on the Whisper White square, and cut the others at the obvious layers. I then mounted each layer with dimensionals for the 3-D effect. You can even curl the tips of the petals upward for a little extra dimension, something that is lost when the card is flattened in the scanner. I simply chose my colors according to the colors in the designer paper, which meant Almost Amethyst, So Saffron and Pretty in Pink. The card itself is of Certainly Celery card stock to pick up the stripe in the designer paper. The white square is framed with Basic Gray card stock.
