Watercolored Falling Flowers

Falling Flowers for Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #58, by Krista Thomas, www.regalstamping.com

I was inspired to make this card when I saw the sketch challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.

These watercolored Falling Flowers are bright and fun, making this a great card to send someone who needs cheering up.

It was simpler than you might think!  I used Stampin’ Up!’s Classic inks to stamp the various images from Falling Flowers and then used a blender pen to pull the stamped ink into the petals.  The ink colors which were stamped on Whisper White card stock are Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pacific Point.  Be careful not to overwork the blender pen or your paper will start to get fuzzy.

Once everything was water-colored, I then cut them out with their coordinating framelits, May Flowers, and then used Lots of Labels Framelits to create the white background label.

On the background of the card is a piece of Brights Designer Series Paper in Tempting Turquoise, cut in half so that I could use both sides of the paper.  For the sentiment, I used a saying from Best Birds and stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Finally the label is topped off with a white baker’s twine bow.

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you stamp today…
