Flower Garden

Today’s card is such a simple layout and very quick to put together, my son actually helped me make this card. The stamp set ‘Abstract Impressions’ does all the work for you.

These stamps are what we call 2-step stamps, as in the image is created in two steps. The greenery is stamped in Granny Apple Green, the lighter colour is achieved by stamping off onto scrap paper first. The detail is then stamped over the top with full strength ink. The flowers are stamped in a similar way using Lovely Lipstick.

The beauty of being abstract imagery is that you don’t need to be exact about lining up the two stages of stamps. Just plonk then down in the general area.

I finished the card with a sentiment from the same stamp set and then mounted the front panel on a thick whisper white base.

I can’t wait to see what else I can create with this set….stay tuned 🙂
