Hello, crafty friends! I played with the August card kit from Simon Says Stamp recently. I love the florals! I used some yellows and oranges to give my floral card an autumn vibe. It's been in the 90s the last couple weeks, but a cold front is supposed to blow through tomorrow and autumn weather will soon be here!!
I stamped the Modern Rose Blooms background stamp with yellow ink, but instead of stamping my whole background I stamped only the center portion of my cardstock and used a microfiber cloth to blot away some of the ink around the edges for a soft transition. I inked up only portions of my stamp with some orange ink to give the appearance of shading. The sentiments are stamped directly on the card base.
I colored my image from the Mandy's Flowers stamp set with real brush markers from Hobby Lobby. I absolutely LOVE them! They color fabulously! I considered doing a review, but unfortunately I don't have anything to compare them to, so I don't think it would be very helpful. I cut out my image and popped it up with foam squares. I thought it needed something else, so I trimmed down some of the patterned paper in the kit and added it to the sides of my panel.
Thanks for joining me!
