Painted Petals

Painted Petals (138819) is a versatile floral stamp set in the current Occasions Catalogue. Use it with the coordinating Spring Flowers embossing folder and Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.

Use a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for perfect placement of this 2 step image. I inked the floral with Soft Sky ink and added a touch of Island Indigo ink with a Sponge Dauber to the images before stamping.
Ink: Soft Sky (131181), Island Indigo (126986)
Paper: Soft Sky (131204), Island Indigo (122923)
Accessories: Soft Sky seam binding (131210), Pearls (119247)

Stamping Off is an easy technique to achieve more variation of a colour. Simply ink the stamp and stamp two or three times before inking it again.
For the little flowers, sponge some ink onto Vellum card stock before punching them out. I used the handle of my piercing tool to shape them on the Piercing mat (126199).
Ink: So Saffron (126957), Hello Honey (133643)
Paper: So Saffron (105118), Very Vanilla (101650), Vellum 101856).

Use Stampin' Write Markers to colour individual images on a stamp. Perfect for this repeating image of 3 flowers.
I heat embossed the sentiment with Clear embossing powder.

The coordinating Spring Flowers embossing folder (137365) makes a lovely background for the images in this stamp set.
Ink the pair of flower image with Blushing Bride ink and sponge Melon Mambo ink in the middle. After stamping the image over the stems, sponge a little Blushing Bride ink to fill in the middle.
Ink: Blushing Bride (131172), Melon Mambo (126948), Mossy Meadow (133645), Pear Pizzazz (131180).
