For the last day of September, I created a single layer card. With the exception of using Blending Brushes, it’s #simplestamping, just stamps, ink, and paper. It was totally inspired by the Fusion challenge; the photo, colors, and sketch. I was surprised how the paint colors match Stampin’ Up’s colors perfectly!
I used Blending Brushes on Basic White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″) with five colors of ink, in this order: Pool Party, Mint Macaron, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze.
The Soft Seedlings Stamp Set has beautiful images, and I stamped the large leaf in Cajun Craze Ink.
The sentiment, “Sending healing thoughts, may nature’s beauty bring peace to your soul,” is from the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set, stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, which matches the Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4.” I stamped the sentiment to provide the line in the sketch, which I wouldn’t have thought to do without the challenge.
