Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop!
This month we are going to be sneaking a peek at the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs.
When I first flipped through all the pretties there was one set in particular I knew I was going to NEED. And that was the Petal Passion Suite. I'm a sucker for all things water color looking- and I was in awe of the crisp black & white imagery which would lend itself to all the new coloring options.
For the base of the card I used black cardstock with a layer of the Petal Passion DSP. The sentiment and flowers were stamped with Momento ink onto a layer of whisper white cardstock, & the flowers were cut using the matching die (I actually did two layers of the flowers). In addition, the coral vines in the background were cut using a thinlit from the set (there are a ton of both framelits & thinlits in there for all sorts of options!).
Next I pulled out my new Stampin' Blend markers and got to work coloring the flower images. One layer I cut up to use for 3-D pieces and I mounted these to the lower layer. The image colored up beautifully with the alcohol markers. The picture doesn't do the depth of these flowers justice :)
After that just had to assemble the pieces and add some bling. And of course I smothered the entire thing in Wink of Stella. Because what doesn't look even better with a little sparkle :)
I hope I've helped you fall in love with this suite of products as well. Now hop along and see what everyone else has created for us today!
