I don’t own flannellette sheets for my bed because I haven’t found a set that I like yet. Most of the colours are uninspiring and the patterns are….um….I don’t really know how to describe them actually. I just don’t like the look of them. Love the feel, not the look.
Then I saw these and I have hope that pretty flannelette sheets may soon be available for me.
These sheets are from Garnet Hill, a US shopping site for clothing and home decor. It was the site chose by Splitcoast Stampers Inspiration Challenge, for this weeks card challenge. After fluffing aroung for the best part of a week getting my Balloon Tree card done ( see last post), it was a nice change in pace to get these next three cards done within an hour.
I don’t often stamp a background paper, but I felt with this card that I wanted the white background of the focal image to stand out from the background. I was trying to mimic the random all over pattern of the sheets.
For this card I just took the same idea of stamping from the first, but this time I filled in more of the white spaces with the green leaf stamping, and separated the trio of flowers into their own panels. At this stage I’m thinking, while there is nothing wrong with the cards I’ve made I’m not entirely WOW’ed by them either. So while I’m sticking this card together my mind is already working on trying to figure out how the create the look I’m really after. And this is my final attempt.
I’m very much liking where this card is going. Still needs a bit of work co-ordinating my edges, LOL. I obviously could decide on clean, distressed, sharp or rounded, LOL. Still this one is my favourite. Something about it appeals to me.
For these three cards I used ;
- Inks – Kiwi Kiss, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Rose Red.
- Card stock – Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose Whisper White
- Stamps – Stampin’Up! Botanical Blooms and Warmest Regards
- Extras – Cuttlebug embossing folder Leafy Branch
Hope all my readers are having a very inspired day today!
