Visa-Versa Card

Another card showcasing the stamp set that I will be giving away this week, I hope you are following all of this ha ha ha.
I started this by playing with colours and being unsure which one to use, I stamped out the flowers and build them up then couldn't decided which one to use, I got out the plum card and folded it into a base card, still very unsure that I would use it, I then reached for the pink and placed it on top of the plum to place the flowers on top to see which colour would work best, so there is was... they both worked so I combined the two.


Attention to detail...

The flowers were stamped 4 times in each colour then cut out in layers stuck on layer on top of the other using foam pads then added a pearl for the middle of the flower.



The ribbon was a length of each colour folded in half one looped through the other one and pulled across the card then securely fastened with tape one the inside of the card, as the base card is plum coloured I cut out a piece of the pink and covered the taped ribbon inside.

Beautiful card. I like the way you've used the ribbon, ideal if your not good at tying bows. I'm going to have a go at layering a stamped image. Debbie M

So beautiful...this reminds me of the art projects I do with my classroom dealing with color and positives/negatives. The ribbon is a wonderful accent.

I like the idea with the ribbon, when you think there is nothing else but a bow? Love it.
Thanks Jak for your stunning ideas.

Just beautiful, Jak - those colours together are so, so striking and your composition is fantastic (goes without saying, really).
