Just Add Ink #262 - Painted Petals

I hope you've all had a fun and fabulous week. I've spent mine doing a bit of creating and playing (maybe with some new Stampin' Up! products that are due to be released on 2nd June. Watch this  space to see some new goodies).

This week at Just Add Ink we have a colour challenge set by fellow JAI member Di. It's not a usual colour combo of mine but I really like it!




I've had a bit of a play with the Painted Petals stamp set. It's a beautiful set and I've only used a couple of the images from this stunning set.

To get the variation in colour I've done whats called second generation stamping. So to get the lighter colour I've inked up my stamp, stamped the image onto scrap paper and then stamped again on my cardstock and it stamps a lighter image. That way you can use one ink pad and get two different colours.

Be sure to check out the other talented Just Add Ink Design Team Members, they are a very creative lot!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Your card is stunning!! I always forget about generation stamping, you've done it beautifully with the flowers, has such a wonderful effect. And I love the dotty background paper you used, its so pretty.

  10. I love how you've used these colours Rochelle - everyone has used them so differently. I still haven't got this stamp set yet - but the more I see it, the more I want it. They really have a lovely wispy feel.
