Welcome to day three of Flourishes release with one of our very first scenery stamp set. I love creating a scene! Especially when it is a single stamp and color image.
Today I have two views of the same card. In this first picture I had stamped the Florence scene on watercolor paper note card with versa fine onyx ink. I like this pigment ink when I am going to use water on my paper. In real life the image on my card looked very "flat" when viewed face on, although, like some finished cards, they look better in pictures than they do IRL. Be that as it may, I cut out the center of the stamped image then backed it with Early Espresso card stock, then popped that panel up in the same spot it was cut from.
Looking at the two cards here I am not sure which I like the best. I am aware that my perception of the design could all be an illusion because of the angle of the photo and the difference in backdrop colors. In any case the top card looks just as good as the one below.
No matter the outcome, "Flavor Of Florence" is a fun set to work with. Just take a look at what the team has designed to see just how much fun you could have "creating a scene"!
