Guest Designer: Taheerah Atchia

Hi everyone, Happy Wednesday! It’s Taheerah and I’m so happy to be joining you again this month as The Ton’s Guest Designer! I’ve been having a ball so far!

The Ton does flower designs like nobody else. There’s always something different or unique about them that sets them apart. The Dahlia Close-Up Cling Background stamp is a perfect example and I couldn’t wait to ink it up:

With such a striking background, you don’t want the sentiment to distract too much, so I opted for one of the quotes from the Timeless Icons Sentiment stamp set. The subtle look of the sentiments matched the elegance of the design perfectly.

I’ve barely scratched the surface with both of these stamps! This card design could be easily turned into a coordinating set, and you could still keep it fresh by altering the colours of the embossing powder and watercolouring, and changing up the sentiments too!

I hope you’ve loved my work here today! I’ll be back again soon with something new to share – or head on over to my blog to see some of my other work in the meantime! Thanks for stopping by!
