Today I have made a card for the Clean & Simple and Inkspirations challenges. It has been some time since I've entered Inkspirations so it's good to be playing along this week!
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Life Definitions, Best Yet
Ink: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Regal Rose
Card Stock: Whisper White, Regal Rose
Other: Regal Rose 1.6cm Grosgrain Ribbon
I used markers to ink up the rubber so that I could use the three different colours and achieve variation in the petals. I also added a drop of water to the tops of the flowers before stamping which dilutes the colour a little and gives it light and shade so that it looks 3-D. Here is a close-up of the flower...
And now for something a little bit cute. During the week I received this gorgeous bouquet of chocolates accompanied by Dr Ted E Bear. It was sent by my mother in-law, sister & brother in-law, to cheer me up. They live a bit too far away to just pop in and visit and wanted to send something. It was very much appreciated and I smile every time I look at the bear!! He's so adorable, I'll be taking him to hospital with me :)
