Virginia's Versatile Vases #6

Happy Friday!!

Today's is another series of Versatile Vases. I know I can keep going with this series, but am afraid that it has come to an end. However, never say never...if I feel creative about using the vases, I will. So you will not see the end of this.

You might be wondering how I came about with this design?
I started out with extra leaves stamped in Grey on my desk....
What to do with them?  Well, yes, put them in a vase!

I also added the white dots to make the leaves stand out more.

I also used the silver pen to color the leaves.
The silver gel pen really make the grey design shine!
 I tell you, sometimes it's al  about the little things!

It really is a good idea to use the SAME stamp that you use for the focal point AND for for the background. In this case, I used a light green ink and partially stamped the background for depth and interest.

Using the same stamp for the focal image and the background makes for a gorgeous card which carries the same theme throughout. Great idea and lovely at the same time. The white detail on the leaves really makes them stand out. Such a pretty card in the vase series.

Don't you love it when you can use up your snippets to make something equally as beautiful and the original project you cut them for. Those leaves, which you enhanced so perfectly, are fabulous in this vase. I'm really going to miss this series.
