Thank you Blooms for Sunday Stamps

Happy Easter! I hope you are celebrating with those you love today.

Today marks the start of a new colour challenge at Sunday Stamps...

Here is my take on the rainbow colour scheme using the the Botanical Builder bundle:

Thank you card featuring the Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits.
For this project I turned to one of my favourite techinques: Emerging Colours. I began by sponging several colours of ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. I used: Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, and Tempting Turquoise. Then I stamped several of the flower images from the Botanical Blooms stamp set in Versamark ink and heat embossed the images using clear embossing powder. I then sponged the entire panel with Night of Navy ink. The clear embossed areas resist the ink, allowing the vibrant colour to show through. To make the colours pop even more I wiped the embossed areas clean of ink using a tissue.

Using the Botanical Builder Framelits, I die-cut several flowers and some leaves. I used Cucumber Crush card stock fo the leaves, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Tempting Turquoise for the flowers. I also punched a few small flowers using the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack...they are perfect for layering. I used some scrap gold foil sheet for the centre of the largest flower. I also die-cut the sentiment from gold foil sheets using the Greetings Thinlits. I embellished the centres of the flowers using rhinestones that I coloured using the gold Wink of Stella glitter pen to give them a more golden shine, rather than silver. Behind the sponged panel, I added a piece of gold foil sheets, off-setting it slightly. The focal panel is actually adhered square on the Night of Navy card base, but the off-kilter panel behind it gives the layout a funky twist.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Lovely Amazing You in Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White panel. I added some more flowers from the Botanical Blooms set in Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo inks.

This rainbow colour challenge is so much fun...I am going to keep playing with it this week...stay tuned. In the meantime, be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects and then give it a go yourself. We'd love for you to share your work with us at Sunday Stamps this week!

Have a blessed Easter!
