Hello friends. So a few weeks back I was making my rounds through the blogs I like to visit, and came upon THIS POST from Darnell, and dang it Darnell, I HAD to have the Concord and 9th You Are Enough stamp set you used! I don't think even 5 minutes had passed since I viewed Darnell's beautiful cards before the stamp set was in my cart and paid for! Talk about enabling...good job Darnell! But just so you know Darnell...I'm not mad because I absolutely LOVE this stamp set and had a blast playing with it over the weekend! Here's what I came up with:
I had so much fun I couldn't stop at just one! And I needed to replenish my birthday and sympathy stash, so it all worked out great! The red card on the left (2nd photo) I actually used some Crimson Brusho's directly on the stamp, misted with water, and then stamped onto my cardstock. I love the bits of intense color and the watercolored look to this one! On all of them I embossed the outline image AFTER I stamped the background part of the flower. I also used my MISTI on all my images to get the depth of color I wanted by multiple stampings. The red card on the right is such a deep red, and I had to stamp it 3 times to get that depth of color. The peachy pink and peachy yellow cards used a blending tool to get that seamless look of blended color. I didn't use any of the sentiments that came with this set, but I will later...they're very bold and contemporary and will definitely look fabulous with this beautiful flower image!
So thank you Darnell for showing me what I NEEDED and helping me spend my money...I've loved every minute of it!! Aren't stamping friends just the best?!! :0)
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!
