I used the sketch from Stamping411's Saturday Sketch Challenge #185
|Here's the sketch|
When I saw the colors for the Color Challenge on SCS today to use Pretty in Pink, Cherry Cobbler & Melon Mambo with a neutral of choice, this card came together for me.
I inked the flower head with my Pretty in Pink SU Marker and used the Thumping Technique to add Melon Mambo. I inked the stem with my Crumb Cake marker. It took a few tries before I got an image that I liked. If you try this, you may want to practice on scratch paper first.
I masked off the top portion of the card and sponged all three colors on the bottom section.
Something I discovered while doing this card. Sometimes there are areas of the flower head that don't stamp evenly. There is a single flower stamp in this set and by inking and thumping it I could stamp it in the "weak" places and it filled in perfectly!
