HSS Inspo Board

What is HHS?  Why it's Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Today over at the official site we have a new inspiration board to motivate our stampin'.  Click over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see it all.

For my take on the challenge I gravitated to the top left and bottom right.  Specifically the colors and floral theme.  I pulled out the Summer Shadows Stamp Set and Dies to create this light hearted springy card.  My colors include Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Soft Seafoam, Sahara Sand, and Polished Pink.

I inked up the floral image with three inks and then dabbed it with a blending brush to soften and harsh ink pad lines and mix the colors.  I also used matching Stampin' Blends to splatter the Sahara Sand side of the card.  The left side of the card is covered with a pieces of Pansy Petals DSP (retired as of today).

  1. Wow, Elizabeth, I love the look of the blended colors! I totally have to try that with the blending brush how you describe - it came out gorgeous!
