|Christmas card featuring the Bloom With Hope stamp set with sentiment from Many Merry Messages (retired).|
...so I decided to enter this card. We'll see what happens!
To create this look I stamped the images in black Staz On and then started with a watercolour wash in Crumb Cake all over the background of the watercolour paper. I coloured the flower using an aquapainter and Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight ink pads. The leaves were done with Mossy Meadow ink and an aquapainter. Once the images had dried I stamped over the whole thing using one of the spatter images from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and gold Metallic ink. I matted the whole thing on a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock.
On the inside I stamped the leaf image again, as well as the gold spatters and then added the sentiment, from the long-retired Many Merry Messages set, in Mossy Meadow ink.
