Last Chance Hop

This is a chance to showcase what is about to finish in just 7 short days with the end of Sale-A-Bration.  For me i choose to use both the Botanical for You and the Party Pants, two of my favourite stamp sets that you could earn when you spend just $90.00 with your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

Inkspired 36

Wild about Flowers?

Welcome to the 36th Blog Hop for the INKspired Artists.  Hop you are enjoying a nice spring weekend, although its be rather warm here.

If you landed here from another blog members its most likely Maree and I am excited to see what she has made for us.  I am not going to speculate on what she may or may not have added as last fortnight I got it wrong……..lol

Our sketch this week was to create 3 individual piece and place them on a card front.  I have to say it is such a nice easy card to make.

36 Blog Hop

Then just needed a sentiment along the front, What do yo think?  Nice?

Heres my slant on it this card, hope you enjoy.

I chose the Wild About Flower stamp set, this is a two step one, allowing you to stamp the leaves and then position your flowers on top.  Whilst I resisted the Photopolymer Stamps, they are great if you need to position two stamps together, they these flowers.

Colours used were, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mango and Coastal Cabana, I mounted them on Crumb Cake and then onto Old Olive Cardstock.  For the sentiment I use the words from the Open Heart Stamp set, “So hard to find the words”  such a nice sentiment and this could be used to converse different messages that could suit a number of situations.

I kept the inside very simple with just stamping part of the flower, I like insides, don’t you?

Hope you find some inspiration as you journey along our hop and don’t forget to leave a small comment, we love comments.  Next your off to see what Teneale has made for you and I promise you your going to love it.  I do and I want to go to her class just to make one for myself.

Wisteria Wonder

 Here is the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and I used Wisteria Wonder as my main color to water-color the card.  If your new to water coloring, start of with a really light mix of water and ink.  I use my reinkers in a small plate, allowing me to mix it out to the side of dish and have enough to color the whole flower with the one color then mix some more in another spot that will enable me to put some extra toning on the petals.

Why not try it, it’s a lot of fun.
