Misty Flowers...

Happy Wednesday,

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.

Enjoy...

  28. Was going to comment on this yesterday, John, but I was away from home and my I-Pad wouldn't let me do it! Anyway, love the colours. They give a really moody, atmosphric feeling to this card. xx
