Cala Lily From Grungy to Clean and Simple (by Julie)

Hello, today I have three Cala Lily themed cards with two distinct styles.

My first project has a grungy style and most of the images come from Cala lily Blueprint. I started this card by stamping the main Cala Lily design and then covered it with masking fluid. You can also just stamp onto copy paper and then cut out and use the copy paper image as a mask as well. With the main image covered I coloured the background with Distress and spray inks, also adding in a dotty stencil for interest. Once everything was dry I removed the mask and coloured the Cala Lily with polychromos pencils and stamped the background images. You can find an extra stamp I used in the background on Wild Cornflower Blueprint.

My second card is a simple DL design. I inked up the single leaf from Cala lily Blueprint and stamped in a zig zag pattern along the left hand edge of the DL card. I then added in the single stem Cala Lily at the bottome and top right. This was then coloured with Distress ink and polycromos pencils. The single stem Cala Lily was then stamped onto spare card and the single leaf was stamped twice either side of the stem before being coloured with polychromos pencils. I then cut out the image with an oval die and added a black card-stock matt, before attaching to the front of the card.

My second card is very clean and simple and again uses the stamps from Cala lily Blueprint.
I stamped the three separate designs along with the sentiment using Onyx Black Versafine ink, before colouring with polychromos pencils. I then applied a teal coloured dye ink through a dotty stencil, across the plain white card-stock background.

So you see, the same stamps can be used in a variety of ways...what have you done with yours?

Please call back soon for more Design Team inspiration.
