Elements of Style Friend


Today's card is not made with any sketch or color challenge or any other challenge, I just love this set and wanted to make something quick and easy.

I wanted to show that this set is NOT hard to use or you don't need mega water coloring skills to make it look great. I stamped the flowers onto whisper white card stock with razzleberry ink. I then went back in with my aqua painter and just colored the flowers with the ink already there from stamping. I used some old olive and a bit of summer sun to do the leaves and the center of a few of the flowers.

I used my circle and scallop circle nesties to cut out the main image. the base of the card is rich razzleberry and I followed that with white and then some pale plum. I used an EF on the plum. The DS paper is from the cottage Wall pack. I added some satin ribbon and used a sizzix die to cut out my small tag. I used the "Picture This" stamp set for the "friend", I just inked up the part I needed with my black marker.

Well, that is all from me today, Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
