This one is for Stampin' Royalty's Picture Perfect Inspiration Challenge #23. The colours in this photo are so great. That is definitely something I took from the photo. I also love the bright vibrant flowers on the contrasting dark brown branches so I chose to try and recreate that as well.
I added depth to my image by stamping it twice in a row just a smidge off. I didn't want the shadow to be the same brightness so I didn't reink my stamp the second time I stamped. I originally wanted to cut out the flowers and stack them with dimensionals but discovered that they are a little too small to cut out and still look nice, so this was my second idea.
I stamped off one more time without inking up again to get a shadow in behind my sentiment. This has become one of my favourite things to do lately. It just seems to dress up a boring and dull sentiment.
