City Meets Country Morning

I was a little worried at first about using this stamp set called Country Morning, because it’s so unlike anything else I own. I started making some cards with it and tried to be as rustic as I could. Then, I decided to use it in a way I’d be more comfortable with. This is the end result and I love it!

The base is Melon Mambo card stock, layered with a piece of textured Crushed Curry card stock. I stamped the “a little something for you” sentiment from Yummy in Basic Black ink at the lower right corner.

As for the main image, from Country Morning, I stamped it in Versamark onto Whisper White and heat embossed it with Black Embossing Powder. Then, I watercolored it with my Aquapainter, using Melon Mambo and Perfect Plum for the hydrangeas. With a Basic Black card stock backing, the image really pops. I also paper pierced around the edge and used my White Signo Gel Pen for faux stitching effect. The sheer black and white polka dot ribbon is from Michael’s, as are the two rhinestone stickies in the upper right corner.
