Birthday Blooms

This has to be one of my favourite stamps. Birthday Blooms. I have a very strong affinity to anything floral.

I cased this card from somewhere but I can't remember where from. It could have even been the catalogue, I'm not sure. I made it nearly a month ago and a lot has happened in that month. So forgive me for not remembering.

There were a few things in  the original that struck a chord with me, and made a few light bulbs go off.  One of them was stamping colour on colour. What I mean by that, is stamping using the same colour ink as the card stock. Tone on tone I think it is called a lot. I see ideas like this, but they tend to not stick in my brain....lol...then when I see them again, it's like, oh yeah I forgot about that technique.

The other thing that appealed to me was the embossing of the stamp. I embossed this one in gold and then coloured the stamp using sponge daubers.

I hope this card has inspired you to create something today.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle
