Contemporary Florals and Big News!

Good morning! Over the last few days I've been playing a bit with the new stamp set called Beautiful Promenade. These are just a couple of cards I came up with. All products Stampin' Up!

The top layer is watercolor paper. The one with the Gorgeous Grape flowers didn't necessarily need watercolor paper, but I already had it cut so I used it. For these cards, I swiped Versamark randomly and embossed the swipes with gold embossing powder. I stamped the base flower with color on both of them (Bermuda Bay for one, Gorgeous Grape for the other), then over stamped the color images with Black Staz-On ink. The gold embossed areas "resist" the colored inks, but a bit sinks in to crevices. The Staz-On will stamp and dry "as stamped" on top of the embossed areas. The main difference in these cards is that I spritzed the flowers stamped with Bermuda Bay with a bit of water. I didn't spritz the one stamped with Gorgeous Grape. The black speckles are from the Waterfront stamp set.

  1. Love your style, Kim. I think I like the Gorgeous Grape the best, with more of the lines in the flower showing. But they are both beautiful. TFS
