Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Penned & Painted Crumb Cake With Vellum Overlay
I have a confession to make on this fine Tuesday morning….
I’m not convinced this card works with the colour set up I have here…. However, in the usual open style of me sharing everything, I’ve decided to bring it to you for your thoughts.
I think the card idea works – I’ve got tone on tone stamping with a full overlay of vellum and then a matching panel on the front.
However, I do wonder if it would be better with a more contrasting stamped image. Perhaps a bright pink on white cardstock with the vellum overlay? Or maybe any colour on a white card rather than the tone on tone?
My top stamped layer has been heat embossed with clear embossing powder, so it does stand out that little bit more. Perhaps that’s what I needed to do on the main underlayer?
I’m not sure. I can’t quite put my finger on why this hasn’t quite worked. It’s not bad, it’s just not quite ‘there’ if you know what I mean.
So I’m throwing it out there to you guys to hear your thoughts.
