Hi Stampers, I hope each of you are having a great stampin week! It's been a busy week for me and life has a way of getting my stampin' off track! LOL
I decided to use Stampin Up's Natural Beauty stamp set. I know it's retired, but I decided to ink it up anyway!! All products are Stampin Up!. I used Old Olive card stock for my A2 size card base. Then I used the Fine Lace background stamp in Bravo Burgandy. My next layer is Bravo Burgandy c/s, followed by another layer of Old Olive. I stamped my main image in Black Stazon on watercolor paper.
Next, I took out my Water Color Crayons, which I absolutely love!!! I colored the flower in Orchid Opulence, and used different degrees of color to produce the shading, to make the flower look real. I colored the leaves, stem & flower background with Barely Bananna. I am happy with the way it turned out. I hope you like it and this inspires you to pull out a retired set & get it inky!!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you have a great rest of the week. Take care!
