I am so excited to be a part of this amazing group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators! If you haven’t heard of “The Crew” yet, you are going to be so thrilled with this. We are here to show you the versatility of one stamp set every time we hop (the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month). We have a whole team of people and different stampers participate each time. Like you, we look to find ways to maximize our investments and the single focus on one set allows you to see all the possibilities! This week, our featured stamp is Blended Bloom. I have loved this flower from the moment I first saw it…such fun to color! And it is retiring so make sure you get it before it is gone.
If you just came over from Bruno Bertucci, I’m so glad you are here! If you want to see everyone who is hopping or if you get lost along the way, just click over to The Stamp Review Crew blog.
Did I mention that I love coloring this flower! Love it! *smile* Today I pulled out Chameleon Pens to see how they would be on this image and they did not disappoint! Only two pens for all the coloring! Love that. The colors were inspired by The Card Concept 54. I did stamp another flower on the side of this one to practice on first. Once I decided how I wanted to do the shading, the rest was just a little bit of patience, coloring each petal separately. I find that coloring makes me really happy so I was thrilled to just take a bit of time on the flower. Once I was done, I cut it out. I colored this yellow ink onto watercolor paper in order to follow the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge. I added a sentiment from Watercolor Wishes and some sequins to complete the sketch.
Well, I know this hop is full flowery goodness so I hope you will enjoy it. Up next, the lovely and talented Martha Inchley! Thanks for hopping through….see you soon!!
