Fabulous Blooms

Hi everyone.  I'm popping in to share a quick clean and simple (CAS) floral card.  I actually created today's card after another card scheduled to post tomorrow.  I recently purchased the gorgeous Hero Arts / Gina K Designs collaboration stamp set called Friendship Blooms.  While putting away my supplies after creating tomorrow's card, I had another simple idea for it.


This stamp image is large and to keep my card CAS, it was stamped off the edge with Amalgam black ink on hot press watercolor paper slightly larger than A2 size.  It would look fine left as, but I added shading with gray and black Polychromos pencils.  The panel was die cut out next with an A2 sized stitched rectangle die (retired).


The bold greeting was die cut from Bristol paper and blue ink was then blended on with a blender brush.  For some sparkle, it was inked with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  A few clear sparkly sequins finished off the card.


Easy-peasy.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.
