Happy Saturday! I'm a day late, but better late than never, right? Karla asked us to feature the new In Colors for our Fabulous Friday project for the Sisters in Stamping blog this week. I used the new Abstract Impressions stamp set for my card along with the new In Color inks and card stock.
Normally, I would not have chosen these bright colors for this stamp set but I really like the way this card turned out! Stamping off muted the colors enough to make it work.
Here is a close-up of the images I stamped - I love 2 and 3-step stamping! These come together really quickly, my go-to technique. For the largest rose layer I stamped off once with the grapefruit grove ink and then went full-strength with the second layer. The detail stamp was done with second-generation lovely lipstick. I also used second-generation with the Call me Clover ink for the leaves.
Here is another view of my card. For even more In Color ideas and inspiration, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
