The Floral Statements stamp set has such beautiful images with sentiments built in, and are perfect for some basic colouring using the Stampin' Blends markers. I know I should be making Christmas cards, but I am a huge procrastinator and this year time of year I find I am needing several thank you cards so I couldn't resist inking up this gorgeous image.
The roses were coloured using both shades of the Daffodil Delight Blends. I started with the lighest colour then added the darker to build depth into the image. I did the same with the leaves using the Old Olive Blends. It is important to remember to use the Thick Whisper White card stock and stamp using Memento ink, when using the Blends.
The image itself is so pretty on it's own, that I didn't want to overwhelm it with busy DSP and a lot of embellishments. So I backed the main image panel onto a soft subtle leaf pattern from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP. To finish it off I added a Metal Rimmed Pearl. A very simple card that took less than 20 minutes to make, but I think it turned out really pretty. Just goes to show that you don't need a ton of product or time to create:)
