The Artistically Inked bundle is part of a stunning suite which includes coordinating Specialty Designer Series Paper and an Ephemera Pack. I created my card with the smaller flower in this set, with a different colour palette giving it a vintage look.

Our stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus came in very handy to stamp these flowers. I started by inking the entire flower in Blushing Bride and stamping. Then I added highlights with Flirty Flamingo and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers, stamping after each addition of colour. For the darker flowers I added Merry Merlot with a sponge dauber along with the Markers.

The leaf sprigs were die cut from Basic White cardstock and then sponged in Soft Succulent, Pear Pizzazz and Merry Merlot to give a variegated look.

The Basic White panel was stamped with leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set. Then I added some embossing paste using a mask. This week my featured product is our Decorative Masks. These are a low cost product that gives you many options for layering and adding texture to your projects.

I used the Stamparatus for the sentiment so I could re-stamp to get a nice depth of colour. Stamping it 3 times over gave me a rich colour.
