Blended Bloom


Hello and a very happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing another card using the SU! Blended Bloom image, colored with Coastal Cabana Blendabilities, clear-embossed, and fussy cut. I added some leaves that were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, clear-embossed with a Hero Arts stamp and fussy cut. Everything was popped up on foam tape and a giant brad was placed in the center of the flower. The card base is vanilla, and the sentiment and dsp are from SU!. The border was done with a SU! punch, and I pulled that out of my scrap bin as it worked perfectly to accent the black center of the bloom.

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - anything goes.

I'm also entering this into the Snippets Playground #131.

Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!!

Carol

Saw this at Snippets and wondered how I missed it. This flower is so dimensional with the way you've colored it. Had to read the fine-print to see if you had fussy cut the flower too. Love it and the leaf shaping adds so much depth. Wonderfully cool colors & a pretty way to send this sweet sentiment. TFS & Hugs too.
