Opposites week - Sylvie

Opposites will be bright VS pastel... or modern VS shabby with Sylvie today. Once again, same stamps are used but the change in style and colours really make them totally different.
Looking forward to your comments below.

For the pastel background, press your ink pads on the craft sheet, spray with a bit of water and press your cardstock onto the ink. Dry with a heat tool. 
Add the diamonds using the Harlequin mask and Distress inks
For the bright background, apply some paint on the Craft Sheet, spray with a bit of water and press your card onto it. 

 You will end up with a different (thicker) effect than with the Distress inks. You can use some kitchen towel to dab off the excess paint.
Use the mask and Distress inks, but with darker colours this time (Picked Raspberry and Barn Door)
Stamp the images by Lindsay Mason, colour and cut them out

Tear your paper, ink the edges with Distress inks (Black Soot for the bright card, Broken China for the shabby) and glue them on your card
Stamp a few flowers and leaves
Stamp the flowers several time on white cardstock, colour and cut them out to make 3D flowers

For these cards, I added a little flap on the right (made with paper inked the same way as the backgrounds)
and I stamped the text from the same stamp plate
I added ribbons to both cards, as well as a few Kaisercraft roses on the Shabby card and a music notes from Tando Creative.
The girls are glued to the card with 3D foam squares

Matériel utilisé:
Woodware ribbons satin (bright pink et yellow)
Archival ink pad: Black Jet
Distress ink pads: Barn Door, Black Soot, Broken China, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Picked Raspberry)
Lindsay Mason Clear stamps: Hopeful Harriet
Distress stains: Squeezed Lemonade, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry)

See you tomorrow
