Painted Seasons Color Burst

I am so attracted to the flower in Painted Seasons stamp set! It has so much depth and lines that define it. For this particular flower/card, I also added depth of color too. Colors used are Mango Melody, Grapefruit Grove, and Poppy Parade and to add a little shimmer, the whole flower was painted with Wink of Stella.

Use sponge dauber to apply ink to stamp….begin with Mango Melody in the center of the flower

Apply Grapefruit Grove next around the middle part of the flower with a sponge dauber specific for Grapefruit Grove color

Finish with a sponge dauber applying Poppy Parade only around the outer edge of the flower.

Add moisture by “huffing” on the inked rubber and then stamp on your card stock.

Play around with how much of each color you add and then to make the color really “POP”, paint over your flower with the Wink of Stella

See the difference in the color on the top left flower? It appears brighter with the Wink of Stella over it, not to mention a littler glimmer too!

Lovely Lattice Free Sale-a-bration stamp set

Let’s talk a bit about coloring in with Stampin’ Blends on Lovely Lattice stamp set. This stamp works so well to emboss with White Embossing Powder and then color in with Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers! Here’s how I did it….

Next go over the whole flower….shaded part and all with the light alcohol marker.  Here I used Light Rich Razzleberry.  
Also, proceed with the leaves in the same mannor

If you don’t feel like it blends like you want it to….go over the whole image again with the light alcohol marker
