Nine Patch on Paper

Welcome

I  this card was inspired by one made by a fellow Kiwi,  Glennis at Creating Cards.
I also watched the You tube video she was inspired by, presented by another Kiwi ,Natasha Foote

This is my card as a result of the inspiration!


The background 'blobs' were painted with Lindsay's powders using Cabana Coral and Whale Watch Blue.  As I had a recipient in mind for the card I used the centre blob for the sentiment, which was embossed and cut out using the smallest S/B Magnificent Rectangle Die


The individual spots I stamped (using masking to protect the other areas), with flowers in black on the blue, and foliage in bottle green on the coral.


The stamps were some grasses by Hero Arts, and Kiwi Stamping, the flowers were by Stampin' Up (Oh so Lovely, my first set of SU stamps) and Kiwi Stamping. 


I decorated the inside with some washi tape, and one of the Stampin' Up images stamped three times to gain some height and added interest, in London Fog ink. 

I am linking this to:

It's a really lovely design Maxine and super colour palette, I saw Glennis's blue and green take on it and fully intended giving it a go, but not got that far as yet. I gold embossed sentiment compliments nicely.

Many thanks for joining in with our 'Feminine' and 'Favourite Stamps' themes at Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations challenges.

I am really loving this card Maxine, it looks so cool with the little rectangles and a different design in each one. I thought you stamped the rectangles until I read your post. Well done with the free hand painting! Love the sentiment in the middle as well and the inside is equally beautiful. Hugs, Brenda
