Amazing what you can find in your card stock scraps! I had already stamped some flowering branches from Elements of Style on pieces of Crumb Cake card stock but then didn't use them….they were stuck in my pile of scraps in the card stock package. I guess I stamped them one time and then it didn't work out. But today I thought I'd see what I could do with a piece.
All it took was a little coloring in by touching my Blender Pen to the ink pad to pick up ink. If you want to try to be artistic, you can follow the highlighting (the little lines) on the stamped images and apply a little darker ink in those areas. Then come back in and either spread that out a little with your Blender Pen or use a lighter color. This gives you a shaded look that will make people think you are a professional artist! Stamping can make anyone look good!
I thought one of the flowers from Everything Eleanor, a new stamp set I got free at Stampin' Up! Leadership in San Antonio last January, looked like it would match closely enough with the flowers on the branch, so I stamped that separately, twice, cut them both out and glued on the card, slightly offset. And stamped the little bird from Everything Eleanor. The greeting is from Elements of Style. Such a beautiful set!
