Today I'm playing along with Stamp Ink Paper's Challenge #17 - Floral Theme.
I took some inspiration from the colours in the challenge photo too. I started out colouring the pink flowers with my blender pen and ink from the Blushing Bride and Rose Red stamp pads. For the purple flowers though, I used the blender pen to do the centre of the flowers with Tempting Turquoise ink, but used my aqua painter to do the petals with Blackberry Bliss ink. Blackberry Bliss is such an intense colour it can over power the stamped image and lose the stamped lines. I picked up some colour with the aqua painter and squeezed the aqua painter on the lid of my Blackberry Bliss ink pad so that the colour would be watered down a lot. I now have petals that haven't lost the detail of the stamp but still pick up the beautiful Blackberry Bliss colour. I then went back over the centre of the flower drawing out the Tempting Tuquoise colour into the Blackberry Bliss colour with my blender pen. I'm really happy with how the colours came out.
I loved using the new Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalogue on my Perfect Plum base card. Stampin' Up! have been releasing some great embossing folders in the bigger 15.2 x 15.2cm size - wonderful for larger projects. Check out the other "ingredients" I have used to make this card below.
