Faith, Hope, Love

How about some happy bright colors?  All of our spring flowers are blooming and I wanted to embrace the sunshine and the newly green grass.  I had just received this new DarkRoom Door Shadow 3 Up frame stamp, and wanted to play with blending three colors together on the frame.

I started by inking up the middle of the stamp with a yellow dye ink.  I quickly added the orange along the top of the stamp and the green dye ink along the bottom.  Then I spritzed with water to allow some natural blending along with increasing the coverage of my colors.  I stamped onto white cardstock.  I then let it dry.

I stamped the flowers from the Garden Greetings set using Versamark over each panel.  I sprinkled on the white embossing powder, shook off the excess and heated it up.  After that I just cut the word panels from the Wordstrips out to attach on each panel.

Now this probably should have taken about 5 minutes to make but it took me multiple iterations to get the effect I wanted. 

Have a fabulous Saturday!
