hmm...not sure if what I've made really shows gradual too well in the photos, sorry, but in real life the flowers really blend from a soft pink to quite a deep claret. I really wrestled with this card as it kept going 'wrong' or at least not how I envisaged it to be. And I thought I'd never hear myself say this but an ancient sheet of peel-offs really gave me the final touches that I was searching for. Who-da-thunk it?! :)
The black 'smudge' appearance on the stems is part of the 'In Stitches' stamp design, representing areas of thread. .
You can see the richness of the flowers as the colour gradually gets darker below.
I tried colouring the house...nope, looked wrong, coloured the fascia of the house...nope...so I left it colourless.
Stamps used are all by STAMPOTIQUE ORIGINALS.
IN STITCHES (for flower stems)
STITCHED HOUSES (just one of them!)
Always love to play along with Less Is More...such a challenge keeping that clean fresh look.
