Spring blossoms

This is more like it! I like this card much better than the last one, although I never could work out where to put the ribbon (everything was stuck down or I could have tied some around the So Saffron strip).

To create the image from two two-step stamps, I first coloured the solid image with Watercolour Wonder™ crayons then sprayed the stamp lightly with a water mister. Once it had dried, I stamped over the top (using a Stamp-a-ma-jig® for accuracy) with the outline stamp in Basic Gray.

Stamps: Soft Summer, Basic Phrases
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Always Artichoke
Paper: Tea Party
Ink: Basic Gray
Accessories: Large oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Crafters’ Toolkit, Watercolour Wonder™ crayons, Stamp-a-ma-jig®
