Minimalist Floral: Part II

Hi again! I am so inspired with this style of card making that today and tomorrow I’ll be showing you two more alternative ways that you can use a floral stamp to create a background. I wanted to go blue for today’s card, to give it a twist. Check it out:

Flourishes – Cherry Blossoms
Ranger – Embossing Ink, Distress ink in Broken China, blending tool
Inkadinkado embossing powder in Clear
ZAP! heat tool
Memento dye ink in Danube Blue
Merletto crystal stickers
Imagine Crafts sponge dauber
Other generic materials
White textured cardstock

I blended the inks so that I could get at least 3 tones of blue. I think it’s an unexpected color for a floral card, but I like it a lot. Emboss resist will always be a great technique to work with, timeless really.

The sentiment stamped on this card signifies something important to keep in mind. You know, life is a big ball of mud you need to know how to roll without getting dirty… The highs and the lows… One thing I don’t lose through the process is this passion I was born with… I put my heart out, because I don’t know any different. I am who I am. You are who you are, no apologies needed. So wherever you go, go with all your heart…

Let’s keep on trying, and let’s do our best! Big hug to all of you. Hope you enjoyed today’s card. Let me know what you think!
