Michael Strong Card of the Day - Tuesday
The card today uses Mikes small flower stamp along with a smaller circle, set of 3 circles and outline stamp from Stampin Up! The ink is from Stampin Up! (Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point) as is the ribbon. The black splotches are enamel accents. The sentiment is also Stampin Up! This was a quick and easy card to make and I really like the bright colours.
To create the card I stamped Mikes flower in yellow across the middle of the paper. Then I stamped the solid circle, circle outline and 3 dots in yellow around and overtop the flowers. I then did the same thing in red at the top and blue at the bottom. I did the colours out of order because I found it was then easier to divide my paper in fifths. I filled in the middle parts with orange and green, overlapping with the existing colours slightly. The sentiment I had to put in the middle on the yellow so it'd be easier to read.
