I used markers to match the Lipstick Red and Green Apple mats to ink up the petals and centers, coloring the red parts quickly first with a brush tip, then the green and huffing on it before stamping, and then stamped them on two pieces of white cardstock. TIP: If you want a more blended or watercolored look on these, after stamping in color you can drag a wet brush over areas to let the color bleed a little like I did here in the centers. I did the same thing on the front side of my envelope and then on a scrap of white CS that I could cut out to pop up individual flowers around the die cut oval label and greeting from "Versatile Verses".
I also used "In Stitches" around the edges, stitched ribbon tied near one flower like leaves and a stem, and embossed the green layer with the Fleur de Lis folder for some added texture, rubbed with green ink on the edges to make the embossing pop.
Hope you'll find some time to play, just upload your creation using this color combo to the StampTV gallery with the tag STVCSP2, you might win some free stamps! Be sure to check out the Friday video and all the other samples from the team as well with these colors on STV.
Still got a sick kiddo, so I haven't stamped in days! Praying for a better weekend, healthy for all and super productive, same goes for YOU! :) Thanks for visiting!
