Today I finally got a chance to ink up my January Stamp of the Month for the first time.
This is a 2 step stamp set, with a solid base image and coordinating detailed outline image. I inked the base in Cranberry ink, then stamped it off onto scratch paper before stamping it onto the white cardstock. Then I stamped the detail image on top using full strength Cranberry ink. I used a post-it to mask off the blooms to layer the two smaller blooms together, and to add some of the floral sprays in a Kraft colored ink in the background. My color combo inspiration came from the ColourQ challenge. I added a hand drawn line around the card front, and a ruled line around the base.
I went back in on the blooms with my shimmer gel pen to add some sparkle to the blooms. I also dabbed some gold glitter gel in amongst the kraft floral sprays. I added a few Fundamentals sparkly heart stickers to accent the sentiment. This pretty stamp set is not available until January 1, but I hope you'll forgive me a little sneak peek.
