Elements of Style Take ?

I have several projects to share but unfortunately the weather is not cooperating as it has been rainy and yucky which does not make for good picture taking. So I will share with you the second project that we made for club this week. I know that I have been using this set a lot in the last few weeks but it really it my favorite set in the Summer Mini. It takes a little while to watercolor the whole floral image so for club we used Spotlighting to accent just a few of the flowers. To do this you need to stamp you image twice with Basic Gray Classic Ink Pad and then punch out one part of your image with one of the circle or even square punches. We used the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. We watercolored the punched out area with the Aquapainter and Old Olive, Cameo Coral and Ruby Red Classic Stamp Pads. We used the 1 3/8" Circle Punch to add a Old Olive Card Stock layer behind the 1 1/4" Circle. The Hummingbird was made using Rock n Roll. We inked up the hummingbird with Cameo Coral Classic Ink Pad and then rolled the edges on the Ruby Red Classic Ink Pad. We cut out the hummingbird then attached it to the card using a small piece of Whisper White Card Stock that was folded it into a Z shape and attached it to the card and hummingbird with a Mini Glue Dot. This makes the hummingbird appear to be in flight and give it movement. The base of the card stock is Cameo Coral and the swirl image was used on the base of the card stock. Ruby Red Card Stock that was layered behind the floral image has the bottom edge punched out with the Eyelet Border Punch. Just a quick reminder both Cameo Coral and Ruby Red are two of the retiring colors that are only available while supplies last.
If you think getting together with a group of fun ladies that love to stamp every month sounds like fun then you should join us when we start our next Stamp Club group. Contact me and you can join us next month to see if Stamp Club is for you. Thanks for stopping by today. Hopefully the weather will clear up soon and I can take pictures of the other projects I am anxious to share. 'Til Next time, Tonya
