Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post.
The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the image because I had been wanting to use the Paper Florist Dies. These dies do not have a corresponding stamp set but they are loads of fun on their own!
The colors were also very inspirational. I love flowers. The combination of colors for this challenge brought to mind several different types of flowers I am fond of. Tiger Lillies and roses are two of them.
My goal was to make the flowers as real as possible. I tried several ways to color the flowers after diecutting them. I used Blending Brushes, Sponge Daubers and Stampin’ Write Markers. You may enjoy trying to make flowers you like!
The inside of the card needed a pretty flower. The Artistically Inked stamp set had a rose that I liked. I stamped it in Flirty Flamingo Ink. The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green Ink and Garden Green Ink. (I may have overdone the leaves! Lol!)
I found that making the flowers was very relaxing. It really did not take long to diecut the pieces. I hope you give the Paper Florist Dies a go!
