Artistically Awesome Thank You

And here is a different shade of Awesomely Artistic

In today's, vintage styled card project that I am sharing with you, has used the stamps in a very different way to yesterday's card.

You can change the feel of this card, but using classic ink pads from one of the other 5 Colour Collections from Stampin Up!
Each colour collection works with one another, so little thought is needed with regards of 'what colours go with what?' because the hard work is done for you.
Stampin Up! has worked so hard with it's colour collections to also allow the all the colour collections to contrast with one another to.

Now there are some basic rules
Use 1, 3, or 5 colours .... more than that can look overwhelming, and doesn't draw the eye in to the centre of the piece.

You can have different tones of the same colour ... either by using the similar colours in one of the other colour collections,
Or by using 1st, 2nd, & third generation stamping (or more than this depending on the ink you are using)
This simply means the amount of times you can stamp onto your project, before you need to re-ink your stamp. This gives beautiful shades of the same colour, and can at it's faintest, leave almost a watermark effect on a project.
And that is the technique I have used on this card.

I began by making my A6 card base using the A4 Thick Whisper White Cardstock, now available from Stampin Up. Score and fold in half and rotate to the landscape orientation
I then used Watermelon Wonder ink to stamp the flower from the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set. and randomly stamped the front of the card blank using up to 5th generation stamping.
Then I overstamped this with the splatter stamp using Dijon Delight ink.

Now trim a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock, and stamp with a combination of the splatter stamp (using Delightful Dijon ink), the Fern (using mint macaron ink for a tone on tone effect), Tip Top Taupe for the Button stamp, and also for he burlap stamp, which I stamped around the outside border of this panel. 
Next, I adhered a piece of Tea Lace Doily to the reverse of the panel using Fast Fuse adhesive.
Adhere this panel to the card front. I used Fast Fuse.

The next step, is to stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Tip Top Taupe ink. I have used one of the sentiment stamps from Another Thank You.
This was overstamped using the splatter stamp again. And again, using Delightful Dijon ink.
I trimmed the sentiment to size and attached off centre and at an angle to the card front

Finally, I stamped the button using Tip Top Taupe onto a scrap of cardstock, and punched it out.
The edges were sponged using a little Delightful Dijon ink to give more of a 3D image, and this was adhered to the card front using a Stampin Dimensional,
