Hi there! We have a lovely Color Challenge today at Create with Connie and Mary consisting of Island Indigo, Smoky Slate and Chocolate Chip! I just received my new Catalog order the night before we left for a family reunion so I was eager to use a new stamp set this week; this one is called Awesomely Artistic!
First I mixed alcohol and Smoky Slate ink refill in a mister; next I diecut a piece of cardstock (any color) with the Hexagon Hive Thinlit Die and cut out a piece to use as a stencil. I placed it on Whisper White and spritzed it with the ink mixture. Next I stamped the "spots" die with Island Indigo (stamped off twice before stamping on the white) randomly around the card.
The flower cluster was stamped with Island Indigo then I immediately pulled some of the color around the image with a Blender Pen and fussy cut it. I stamped the fern and ribbon (border) stamps with Chocolate Chip and added the button.
The dragonfly was inked and stamped off twice before stamping on the card; after it dried I added Dazzling Details to give it some shimmer. I also added Dazzling Details to the flower centers for a little more shimmer!
