Bloom On

As the garden winds down for the coming of Fall, I have the beautiful colours of the leaves in my head.
I decided to use those colours and the Trumpet Song stamp from Penny Black to create today's card.  I love this stamp and find if so easy to make a quick and simple card using it.

I began by placing the stamp inside my MISTI.  I coloured the flowers using my Memento markers in a light orange, sprayed with water and pressed onto my paper.  I repeated that process using a darker shade of colours until the flowers looked wonderfully blended.  
I stamped the sentiment for the Penny Black set called Gratitude using Memento black ink but felt the card needed more so I drew in a black-line border to pull it all together...much better.

I am adding my card to these challenges:


Sweet Stamps- ANYTHING GOES

I so appreciate that you took the time to come and see what I was up to.

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ Memento bl ink/ Memento markers/ MISTI/ Mini Mister/ fine line bk marker/ ruler/
