I have looked and looked at the stamp set Beautiful Blooms, loving it each time I turn to it in the annual catalogue. I have no idea why I hadn't bought it earlier!
But now I have it and it was the set I turned to when another colour challenge came up recently.
The colours reminded me of gelato!!
Thinking cap on, Beautiful Blooms at the ready and I got to work!
I stamped the bloom and then water coloured the image using the aqua painter and inks to colour it.
I wanted to "ground" the image so I used a stencil and blended Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay as I went to give a type of trellis look. I then raised the bloom on foam dimensionals.
The card was mounted on Sweet sugarplum after adding a sentiment from the beautiful scripted sentiments included in the set, using Soft suede (which I had also used in the leaves).
I doesn't really show here, but the bloom was finished off with a Wink of Stella that really gave it a nice sheen (ok, it was the bling I love to add!!)
This stamp set does not disappoint. You can easily make beautiful cards for any occasion. Get yours now by clicking on my shop link and get making beautiful Birthday Blooms!
