So now on to tell you what inspired this card. First of all the sketch at stamping 411 was the starting point of my inspiration. Their sketch this week is fabulous. Second, I knew this week challenge at LateNightStampers was to make a sympathy card, so I needed something that went along with that challenge. Third, I have been wanting this stamp set since the catalog came out in July and I finally ordered it a couple of weeks ago and had been looking for just the right card. It all seemed to fit for this card, so here it is.
To color this image, I first stamped the image in Not Quite Navy. Then using a blender pen and always artichoke ink, I colored in the leaves. I then pulled out the very vanilla craft ink and using the blender pen colored in the flower. The funny thing was as I colored it in, the not quite navy kind of blended with the very vanilla and I love the color. It is almost a baja breeze which is why I used the vintage flower. Last but not least, I put the always artichoke card stock and the very vanilla cardstock together and then used the new embossing folder "Framed Tulips" and sponged around the tulips soft suede ink to give it a little vintage look and finished it off with some vanilla shimmer smooch spritz.
