This time I wanted to use softer, more subtle colors, so I decided to use purples and pinks. My first card is a very Clean and Simple sympathy card:
The background was created by inking my acrylic block with several shades of pink and purple, then spritzing it with water and stamping it on the white card stock. After the background dried, I inked a small heart stamp and stamped it randomly over the background. Then I stamped my flowers and sentiment. Quick and easy!
I have mixed feelings about this next card. I used the same basic background as the card above, but this time I inked stem images all over the area. I like the effect but feel it might just be a little too "busy" with all those stems!
This technique just has so many possibilities. I still want to make a card with separate color blocks, so I need to add that one to my list. But I have a couple of other challenges waiting on my craft desk, so I am off to work on those now!
Thanks for stopping by!
