Blooming with Kindness

Hello friends.  Needed a few quick cards yesterday, so I did some monochromatic ones, and I really like how this one turned out!  Take a look:


I am kinda in love with the color Lost Lagoon right now, so although I know you'd never see a real flower in this actual color, I really like the way it looks! (artistic license, right?!)  I used the "Donna" technique (that's what my SU! demo calls it) on the flower, which is repeatedly stamping without re-inking MANY times, but only moving the stamp just a tiny bit...this gives the image a soft and filled in look.  The leaves are from PTI's "Beautiful Blooms" and I stamped them off and then re-inked just the edges to give a two toned look.  The sentiment is from PTI's "Embroidered Blooms".  I finished by adding a dyed seam binding ribbon with Soft Sky ink, and a few rainstones.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful (and WARM) day!  (I'm SO sick of the COLD and snow...how about you????)
