Here's a fun color combination for this month's My Inky Friends Design Challenge, inspired by page 63 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! catalog. I love the bright, summery colors, of Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, and Bermuda Bay, don't you? It reminds me of all the flowers that have started blooming around here, so naturally I had to "pick" some flowers from Varied Vases for my card. (Get it? *Pick* Heehee!)
I stamped the vases from with VersaMark ink on the colored cardstock before punching them out. Unfortunately, it's so subtle you can barely see it! Next time, I'll heat emboss in clear so that will make them more visible.
I laid the vases where I wanted them over the frame (Swirly Frames) and decided which flowers to use. Then the vases were slid out of the way to stamp the flower stems. After adding the color fill (2-Step stamping), the vases were popped up on dimensionals.
The challenge is open until June 8th, so you have plenty of time to play along! Just click the banner to see what the rest of the Design Team did with this challenge, and to add your creation. Here are the guidelines:
