This afternoon, I played around at my craft table with a set that I've had for a while but had unfortunately not inked up. I wanted Forever Blossoms from the moment I saw it in the catalogue so it was great to finally use it. I started with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
As I was working, the colour scheme seemed familiar. It turned out that I'd subconsciously taken on board the colour challenge at Just Add Ink.
I started by sponging a column of Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam and then stamping on the leaves in Smoky Slate. I coloured most of the leaves with Stampin' Blends. The blossoms were stamped, die cut and coloured with Stampin' Blends also.
Finally, I stamped in part of a longer sentiment and added in some of the gorgeous new Champagne Rhinestones from the January-June Mini Catalogue.
