Bella Blossoms Again

I love the Bella Blossoms stamp set! Unfortunately I do not own this set! My sister-in-law does and I got to use it when she visited me! I cased my own card (see it here), I just changed the colors and the saying.

The set is called Bella Blossoms. I used basic black, perfect plum, and whisper white card stock. For the flower I used perfect plum and pale plum classic ink, then certain celery and old olive markers for the flower and stem. For the flower I inked it up with the lighter color. I would first color the stem with the lightest marker and then add accents with the darker color. I stamped the flower several times and then cut out the different parts that I wanted to pop out with dimensionals. After cutting out these parts I sponged them with perfect plum for some depth. For the bottom layer of the flower that is popped out I just cut a stamped image out and folded the edges and glued it on. I add Stickles to the center of the flower. I stamped the swirls from Baroque Motifs in pale plum for the background. For the dear friend saying, I stamped it in basic black and then punched it out with curly label punch.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
