Spring in Fall

Stampin' Up!, Flower Shop, Beautiful BunchI decided to break out some more “spring-y” colors this time.  I took this with my phone in the basement, so the colors are a little off.  The card base is Strawberry Slush, with Bermuda Bay on top.

The flowers are stamps from Beautiful Bunch and Flower Shop.  I stamped the images, then used an aqua painter to blend the ink from the outline into the flower.   To make the center of the Beautiful Bunch flower, I stamped again with a darker ink on a scrap piece of paper, then punched it with the 7/8″ scallop circle punch, and layered it to the flower.

As a final touch, I added some of my “homemade” Crushed Curry Dazzling Details to the flowers.  Simply pop to the top off a container of Dazzling Details (I use pliers), then add drops of ink refill.  I have no idea how many.  It depends on how full the container is and how dark you want the color.  I just play around until I’m happy with it, stirring often with a small dowel.

Of course, both sets of flowers have coordinating punches, which is much easier than cutting them out with scissors.

(Note:  I didn’t see the faint frame behind the Honeycomb embossing until now.  Obviously, that was a reject from an idea I had that used the Fun Frames embossing folders.  Oops!  Not intentional.)

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
