Stampin' Up! Greenhouse Garden & Perfect Punches
Welcome to the new Pals'! This is the premier of our designer inspired challenge. Over the coming weeks and months you'll be dazzled with colorful inspiration from designers such as todays inspiration piece by Oscar de la Renta. We'll have our own little fashionista model for color challenges, patterns for card composition and fabulous guest designers from the paper crafting world. AND this is MY premier week as one of the Pal's Design Team. So grab your seat next to the runway or strut your stuff by participating in our weekly challenges!
This week's challenge had so much inspiration, I needed to focus on the upper right corner containing the rose patterned fabric and golden vase.

Putting It Together Tips:
- One thing I always do when I'm working with a two step stampin' technique is to use vellum for the second image alignment. That way I can store the vellum image with the stamp set and use it over and over again. Just mark which edges touched the Stamp-a-ma-jig for easy alignment.
- I wanted to simulate the fabric without duplicating it, so I opted for more graphically bold images like the pacific Point flowers than to try and shade to recreate the nuances of the inspiration picture. I thought these flowers so far away from the main color palette added some interest to the design.
- Using Dimensionals to pop up only a few flowers gives the card some dimension without making everything stand away from the card base. It also allows an easier means by which to tuck background components in.
- I used a Certainly celery marker to give the leaves some texture with out concentrating on fine detail. This again adds to the texture of the composition without overpowering it with detail.
