The challenge with Laurie at The Paper Players is a clean and simple challenge with a theme of Blooms. I’m thinking since blooms are small and not fully opened flowers I would use a spotlight technique to ink in a portion of my larger stamped flower. Mindy Eggen recently did a card featuring this technique on her blog.
I decided on Stampin Up’s From the Garden stamp which was stamped in versamark ink and white heat embossed. Using a masking circle stencil, I blended inks in orange, pink and purple-ish. I wasn’t sure of the color names since these inks were left over on the blending brushes. I was lucky to have come across a piece of Gina K Designs Wild Orchid cardstock which seemed to fit perfectly with my spotlighted colors and added a sentiment strip coloring it with the same blending brush. Amazing how much ink really stays on those brushes.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.
