Creative Crew - February Catalog Focus

Join us for this months Creative Crew challenges!! Here is the challenge for the Catalog focus:

CCREW0212CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Catalog focus: Remember that stamp set that you just had to have? And then somehow it got tucked away on your shelf. Pull out a neglected stamp set and show it some love!

I am a purple freak and just had to make a monochrome card to showcase this set Growing Green. I stamp the flower image with white embossing powder and then used my aqua painter to wet the cardstock the ran my different markers shades throughout the images to get the color depth. Then I cut out the flowers. I wanted the ribbon to match so I used my taffeta white ribbon and ran my markers along the edge to die them .... I would use the lighter color first then the darker. I also used the new adorning accents and edgelits to create the bottom edge. I then stamped my saying and layered the flowers around it add a few pearls and the card was done!! I did also heat the ribbon with my heat gun to give it the crinkled look, just be careful not to burn it!. Happy Stamping!!
