Pretty Painted Flower

Hi there!

If you're looking for my Stamp Fever-Lawn Fawn, blog hop post, please click here or scroll down.

I'm still playing with the pretty stamp from Hero Arts called, Painted Flower. I've told you before that it inks up so beautifully - already shaded - no coloring necessary. Don't get me wrong, I DO love to color, but when I'm in a pinch for a quick card, this stamp will be one that I reach for!
 
For today's card, I had already stamped the flower with markers and it was sitting on my desk waiting to be put on a card. But then I saw a card from my friend Jacqueline, here. She stamped it on a tag using only black ink and it was beautiful! That gave me an idea. Why not overstamp the blue flower with black ink and see what it looks like.



I really love the way it turned out! I created the background using Glimmer Mist and added some more splatters with blue and black, watery ink and the flick of a paint brush.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're enjoying your week! :)

Wow - This is amazing. I would never have thought that you would still see the blue after stamping with black. Love that splatter background too.
