Ornate Garden for Paper Player 482

This week, it's Clean and Simple week at The Paper Players. Spring flowers is a great theme. Even though it's turning into autumn here, flowers are always welcome!

Although I like to experiment with inks, layers and backgrounds, at heart I'm a clean-and-simple girl when it comes to cards. My efforts with the fabulous Ornate Garden suite to date have been quite elaborate affairs, so I was happy to try it out today in a cleaner style.

I started with the single daisy stamp from Ornate Style and, using Stamparatus, mirror stamped it. Then I coloured both images using Stampin' Blends.

I added a simple thanks from Ornate Thanks and used a dark Rococo Rose Stampin' Blend to colour the empty spaces in the font.

 I could have kept things much simpler still by not using the pretty frame and omitting the touch of DSP in the back panel but when you have such pretty supplies on hand, you've just got to use them!

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products.
