Simon Says Stamp Color Coordinates: Spring Flowers

color-coordinates-2017

Welcome everyone!! I hope you’re having a good day.  I have a Color Coordinates recipe that is perfect for Spring flowers! I’ve used some of our new ink colors; Rose Apple, Clementine, Velvet Orchid and Dusty Sage. For the neutral, I’ve used Fog cardstock.

I started by die cutting the Forget Me Not Flowers from Neenah white cardstock and colored them in using Tsukineko sponge daubers with the inks.

I concentrated the ink in the center of the flowers and blended it out to the edges. Blending is a great way to extend your ink colors by creating lighter shades. Once I had my flowers and leaves colored, I arranged them onto a white embossed Flower Medallion stamped on a Fog cardstock panel. I die cut Hello from black cardstock and set it onto a strip of white. To finish up, I added Studio Katia round drops to the flower centers.

I’ve filmed the process of making this card which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
