Ink & Share Blog Hop Occasions Catalogue

Welcome to this months Ink & Share blog hop, this hop is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world, I'm Laura Mackie and I'm a demonstrator from the UK, this month our hop features Stamps & products from the Spring / Summer Occasions Catalogue... these products some maybe retiring but some maybe carrying over to the main annual Catalogue which goes live in June... 

I choose to use Southern Serenade... I fell in love with this stamp set straight away when I saw it.. I love the sentiments and their font.... but I just love those flowers, I knew I could colour them with my Stampin Blends, Watercolour pencils or like I have today with ink and a blender pen, isn't the lace-y background stunning??

here is my card..

I've used Berry Burst Cardstock and matching ink to colour in my flowers... 

I stamped everything on to my whisper white background then die cut the oval out... and then mounted the oval onto a scalloped oval...

I coloured the flowers using the ink from the inside of my ink pad lid with a blender pen.. I wasn't too careful with my colouring, too build up the depth of colour, I coloured the area then left the area to dry and kept going back over it to add more colour until I had the colour I wanted.... this way my cardstock didn't pulp up from over working it too quick which happens a lot for me as I'm an impatient crafter!! 

The stems and leaves are coloured in the same way but with Old Olive ink..

I hope you like my card and I've inspired you to go get inky!...
