Another simple stamped card today that anyone can achieve honest. I just used honey, south seas and cherry inks for this one and just two flower stamps and a sentiment!
I stared by picking up the three colours of ink form the large media plate then ran this over a piece of white paper. I then added the rectangular media plate into the press to impress and added the three colours of ink and brayered over this to merge the colours. I then stamped the small dandelion heads from my Spring flowers clear stamp set in the south seas and cherry over the plate before stamping this onto the background.
Next I stamped the small stamp using the same two colours over the whole area. I then placed the larger dandelion stamp in the press and inked it with cherry and stamped this. I reined the stamp with south seas and moved the card slightly before stamping this over the card so that a faint edge of the cherry shows around the image.
Finally I inked the sentiment with both col,oyrs which gave me the grey shade for this.
