Floral Anniversary

I have been coloring the Stippled Flowers set from Gina K Designs over the last few days. My Versamark Pad was looking quite ugly, like it was growing mold, so it went to the trash. I realized I owned a mini pad, so I used it for a few flowers, then ordered a large pad. I received my new Watermark Pad from Hero Arts yesterday, so I was back in business creating more flowers.

The Retro Rubber Challenge is all about using florals. The Stippled Flower set was released in 2018 and I purchased it immediately. I really enjoy these flowers and the words in the set.

The Just Add Ink Challenge is a color challenge. The colors are Mint Macoron, Blushing Bride, and Rich Razzleberry all Stampin Up colors. Since I own all of the colors, I used them to color the leaves and flowers. I also used a layer of Rich Razzleberry for a mat behind the focal image and the Blushing Bride for the card base. The flowers were all watercolored with the reinkers.

Gina K Designs Monthly Mix challenge is to use an image, a die cut, and a sentiment. I chose to die cut my colored images and added the sentiment. All are from the same Stippled Flowers set. I did stamp the largest flower in a light grey ink to add a bit of shadow behind the colored images. I chose the Anniversary greeting as I think I will send this to my sister and her husband for their upcoming anniversary. I added a few sequins and called it complete.

  1. Awesome card and fit into three challenges, too. The color challenge was perfect for your flowers.

    1. Thanks! I had been embossing them for a while and not coloring. Then I saw Johanna’s post with these colors, so I began inking in those colors. I enjoyed it.

  2. Beautiful card – I like the textured look of the embossing and the sequins. Chantell Just Add Ink
