Heartfelt Thoughts


I got this SU! Heartfelt Thoughts stamp set recently and just wasn't sure how to use it. It isn't an outline stamp, but I wanted to add some color to it, so I stamped it with a light tan ink, and got my Derwent pencils out to add some life to the flowers with color. After I colored the flowers, I took a Copic marker and went around the outside edges, and then covered the whole panel with Versafine Ink and clear embossed it which brought out the colors even more. As a finishing touch, I added some Nuvo clear glitter drops for a little sparkle. The sentiment came from the same stamp set, and I put this on a pool party card base.

I'm entering this into the Double D May Flowers Challenge which includes the following mood board for inspiration...


Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great Friday.

Great colouring on the flowers and just love the blue edges around the outside of them! A different design that looks fabulous with the Nuovo Drops!
Hugs!

I have that stamp too and never thought about doing the way you did. I love it too! It looks amazing with a varied colored bouquet instead of one solid color like I did it before.

This is such a soft and pretty floral display. You coloured is beautifully and I like the glittered finish with the sparkly dots.

Very pretty, Carol! Isn't it great when things all come together? Lovely stamp and coloring. Mine did not come out quite so pastel.
