Stylin’ Stampin’ INKSpiration Card Sketch 22: Best Thoughts


 Today on Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, we have an amazing card sketch.  You can see what the other designers have created HERE and we'd love to have you play along!

SSINK June 2015 Card Sketch-001

I chose the Best Thoughts Hostess stamp set as my focal point.  The flower was stamped in StazOn ink, then colored with markers.  I started with Wisteria Wonder around the outer edges, then added in some Pool Party and Soft Sky.  To blend the colors, I used an aquapainter to soften the hard lines.


I used a white gel pen to add a few highlights to the petals once the blending had dried.  The card base is one of the new In-Colors:  Mint Macaron.  It coordinates so nicely with the Wisteria Wonder and shades of blue.

The only way to "purchase" this stamp set is to host a workshop.  Contact me if you'd like more information.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
