This week at Just Add Ink is the challenge using the beautiful inspiration picture by Nikki.
This just yells summer to me with gorgeous yellows, greens & whites!
I don’t have anything so daisy like, but I love the Secret Garden stamp set and coordinating framelits. Initially I stamped the flowers in daffodil delight, but it didn’t have enough interest, so I used the technique called Kissing. To do this, you ink up the flower stamp with the Daffodil Delight ink, then ink up another stamp with Tangerine Tango ink. Press (KISS) the 2 stamps together before stamping the flower onto the white cardstock. Don’t you agree it gives more interest?
Here is a closer look!
Are you wondering how I created the background? I thought you may. I used the Simply Scored Tool and scored the crosshatch pattern. Then did the same on another scrap piece of card and cut part of it away to create a diamond template (see below). Line the template up on your cardstock and using a sponge dauber, sponge the ink in the bottom of each diamond!
I love this summery style although I am not so good in the heat. Is anyone else suffering with these days over 30 degrees? I like to hibernate and stay inside with the cooler on…. maybe it’s just my excuse to stay home and stamp!!!
