For today’s card, I used the gorgeous “blended bloom” stamp. I am so in love with this stamp! It was designed to go with the new blendabilities markers, but it can be used so many other fun ways, as well! Although I did not submit it, this was one of five cards I created with this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
Tips: I embossed the blended bloom stamp in white and then sponged on the ink with daubers. The leaves where folded in half and run through the Big Shot with the woodgrain texture. (A technique I learned from the talented Frenchie at Frenchiestamps.) The splatter effect was done with a stamp from the old Paper Pumpkin welcome kit, but the same effect could be achieved with the gorgeous grunge stamp set. (You can ink a smaller portion of the stamp by just applying ink to one corner.) Dimensionals help the flag and banner pop off the page.
