Touches of Texture Blues

Touches of Texture Collage Card in Blue

 

Got the Blues?!

Sometimes getting the blues can be a good thing. For this card, I partnered up Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo and Pool Party with Basic Black and Whisper White. Definitely one of my favourite colour combinations.

Making a collage card is easy, peasy with the Touches of Texture stamp set. I simply stamped the flower in Basic Black ink across the Whisper White card stock. TIP: Remember to always start and finish off the edges of the card stock. 

Next, I over stamped the flowers with the blue centers. This set was very forgiving and I didn’t worry about being precisely centered or even in the same direction.

 

Suite Sayings Greeting on Vellum

 

I love using Vellum card stock on my cards as an accent. Do you have some in your paper stash?

I stamped the Suite Sayings Stamp Set greeting on the vellum with Basic Black Archival ink and allowed to dry for a few moments before adding a White Perfect Accent coloured with a black Sharpie marker. Be sure to colour the accent while it is still attached to the packing sheet so you don’t get marker on your card.  

 

Touches of Texture by Stampin' Up!

 There are a few textured backgrounds to choose from in the Touches of Texture stamp set.

Can you see the two different images I selected? One is more of a splatter and the other more of a canvas or fabric finish.
