So Very Kind

This is my second post today, please scroll down and check out my cute 3D project.

The card I am sharing with you today is for this months Gourmet Rubber Stamps color challenge.  I substituted ivory for the gray in the inspiration picture, but other than that I stuck to the colors.


I love, love the inspiration photo below and knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw it.  I used the Rustic Floral Appetizer set from Gourmet Rubber Stamps and embossed it with white powder.  I added color to the stem and leaves with a little Guacamole ink from Clearsnap and for the blossoms I used Tombow's Dual Brush Pen in #126 (Light Olive) and then I smeared the inks a bit with a baby wipe to give that watercolor effect.

 Here is our awesome color inspiration:
