Flower Power

Today I’m playing along with Color Hues and The Flower Challenge for the first card. The newest challenge for Color Hues is using the colors Peach and Green, which by the way I’m in love with. It worked perfect for this new stamp I got from Picket Fence Studio. The Flower Challenge was to use your latest stamps or dies.

I started inking the stamp with Gina K Designs Peach Bellini and Lucky Clover Ink, and then I spritzed the stamp with water. I was trying to give it a watercolored look. Once the paper was dried, I ink blended in the flower to “color” it in. I used Gina K Designs Hearty Greetings for the sentiment, and stamped it with the Peach Bellini Ink. I diecut the card stock with My Favorite Things Wonky Stitch Dies. To make a mat for my card, I ink blended the edges of a white cardstock with the GKD Peach Bellini and die cut it with Pink & Main Stitched Rectangles Dies. I loved how this turned out, so I made a second card with purple.

I did pretty much the same thing with this card, except I used Gina K Designs Lovely Lavender, Wild Wisteria, and Lucky Clover and I turned the stamp. The sentiment was also from GKD’s Hearty Greetings.

I decided to play with the peach and green color combo for Less is More. The challenge is a one layer card with flowers.

I ink blended a section from GKD Peach Bellini to GKD Lucky Clover. Then I stamped the flowers from Picket Fence Studio Forget to Say Thank You Stamp Set and the sentiment from PFS Lily Bouquet Stamp Set with GKD Amalgam Ink. That was it! A quick card.

A closer look at the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great rest of the week!
