Welcome to another Edition of the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop where we feature one stamp set multiple ways! Fabulous Florets is what it is all about on this Blog Hop. If you arrived from Betty's blog, then you are in the right place. If this is your first stop, it's ok because the hop goes full circle. Just follow the links at the end of the post!
Note: the Blog Hop officially begins Monday, March 3rd. If you arrived earlier, the links may not be working until we get everything up and running. So don't give up!
Fabulous Florets has been around for awhile but is still one of my favorites. I decided to make my card current and fresh by using our newest In Colors. And don't let the watercoloring intimidate you - I only used Water Color paper, marker and Aquapainter. Anyone can do it.
To make my card I stamped the Pistachio Pudding foliage a few times on Whisper White card stock. I even stamped a few flowers in Coastal Cabana. Then I layered on the Coastal Cabana designer paper and sentiment. To create the water colored flowers I used Black Stazon ink and stamped the flowers on Water Color paper. Then I cut them out. My final step is to color them: wet the water color paper and add ink with a marker. To deepen the colors just layer on more ink with the marker.
All supplies are Stampin' Up!
