Domestic Goddess

Hi!
Sadly I am not the Domestic Goddess of this blog post, rather it is some DSP from Stampin' Up!  I used it on a card to enter in the latest challenge at Just Add Ink.  It's a cute little sketch, which was perfect for a cute little card.

This card actually started with the flower, and I built the rest of the card around it.  Instead of using water to wet the cardstock I used Shimmer Paint mixed with Isocol which works just as well and has the added bonus of producing a shimmery flower.


I took a few liberties with the sketch and added a cute little bow in some absolutely sunshiny-fabulous Daffodil Delight Satin ribbon.  There's nothing like a bright yellow bow to bring a smile to your face!


A piece of matching DSP on the inside, and a bit more Daffodil Delight ribbon (1/8" Taffeta this time!) and it's done.

  2. I like how the Brad in the middle matched the DSP perfectly. I quite often build my cards from the main focal point (like your flower) outwards too. Chantell
