Godelieve *Day 2*

Check out this beauty by Godelieve: I love the layered stamping on this! WOW! Such beautiful colors, too. The orange and yellow is especially striking to me. And the script stamped on the background of Godelieve's card finishes it off perfectly!
Here is my take. I just had to create an orange and yellow stamped image with text in the background:
I began by stamping the foliage stamp using a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush marker in yellow. After stamping I added shading using Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist pens in red and yellow. The Earth Flowers stamp was stamped using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Finally, I distressed the entire background using Brushed Corduroy and stamped Friends Definition using Brushed Corduroy as well, removing some ink using a baby wipe before stamping. The die cut shape is the Top Note die by Stampin' Up. All stamps Hero Arts: CG125 Friends Definition, CL428 Earth Flowers, CL477 Delicate Leaf Clusters.

Thanks for looking and thanks especially for all of your sweet comments yesterday. HUGS!

Love your cards ladies! Such amazing depth with the layering ;)
The neutral colours have a wonderful relazed feel. And I must remember to try more die-cut shaped cards. It's a stylish look!

Those colours are so beautiful Jill! I love the clean white butterfly you added to your card!

Kathy said...

Both cards are stunning! I love how you removed some of the ink from the text stamp. That die is a great shape, I'm going to see if I can approximate it with my Silhouette.

The same idea on both cards but they are different. I really like when two people use the same idea/technique but make it their own.
