Flowering Fields

This is truly my favorite stamp set in the Sale-a-Bration brochure!

You, too, can have this stamp set (for FREE!!) with a $50 order now thru March 31, as a part of Stampin' Up's awesome Sale-a-Bration promotion!

We start our card with a Crumb Cake card base, then added layers of Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Very Vanilla card stock - each piece is cut 1/8" smaller than the one beneath it.   I love how just a hint of color peaks out with this layering!

Next, we stamped those gorgeous flowers (from the Flowering Fields Sale-a-Bration stamp set) in our Basic Black Archival ink.  This archival ink is perfect for water-coloring, as it is a permanent ink that will not bleed.

With our Blender Pens, we added a bit of color to each of our flowers, with Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon ink.  Just squeeze the lid of the ink pad together (while it's closed!) to put a bit of ink in the lid, then draw up a bit of ink with your blender pen and start coloring.  When you're done with one color, just keep coloring on a scrap piece of paper until the blender pen is clear again.  Then, move on to your next color.

Finally, we tied a Linen Thread bow around the 3 layers and then added them to the card.

I just love the soft, simple, natural look of this card!

Thanks so much to Shannon Kay Paperie for her inspiration on this card.
