I woke up this morning with the Penned & Painted stamp set calling to me. Have you ever had that happen to you? The stamp set won't get out of your head until you create something beautiful. That was Penned & Painted this morning. Plus, the Penned & Painted stamp set is Retiring. Which means that it will only be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or until May 31, 2017.
About Today's Card
I wanted a soft outline, so stamped all 3 layers including the outline with the same color on each flower. It's a stamping technique called 3-step stamping. Each stamped layer builds on the other.
Today's color combo is Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango and Old Olive. These colors together are a bit of a stretch for me, but I think that they turned out lovely. It was the Color Challenge this week on Splitcoast Stampers.
After stamping all the flowers and leaves I decided to add just a little more happiness, so I sprinkled in Tangerine Tango dots.
The "sloppy bows" are 5 layers of Whisper White Baker's Twine.
Some friends of ours have spent the last several days at the hospital for a unexpected medical emergency. What do you say at a time like that? The Here for You stamp set covers so many hard situations. Here's what my card says inside.
