Bright Blooms

Hi everyone! Hope you've had a great week. It's been wet and cold here in Lower Hutt this week, great stamping weather. Here's a card I made last weekend, using some of the new In Colours for this year - which I LOVE! It's so nice to use these bold colours on grey days!
The image from Eastern Blooms was coloured with markers. Now, there are no markers in the In Colours, but this is easily resolved. Simply load a blender pen with a drop of ink refill in the colour you want, and you can use it as you would any marker - even directly on the rubber of your image! Make sure to huff a warm breath on the image before stamping to re moisten the ink.

The colour combo for this card is Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Summer Sun.

This image is easier to cut out than it looks, although I did accidentally cut around one flower, removing it from the image - can you see where? The sentiment is from Occasional Greetings, I love it, it's perfect to use for a card that could serve in many circumstances.
Here's the inside of this card, simply stamped with the colours used in the main image.

Have a great weekend, and Happy Mother's Day for Sunday!
