Breathtaking Bouquet with Stampin’ Blends

Have you skipped over the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp in the new Mini Catalogue?

I know I did to begin with, but each time I flipped through, something about it drew me in.

Well, it arrived last week and I’m pleased it ‘accidentally’ fell into my shopping basket.

As you know, I’m a big fan of the monochrome-esque look, so here I’ve stamped it in Smoky Slate onto Whisper White cardstock. I’ve then really roughly coloured using the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo. I used the darker pen first to highlight certain areas, then I went over everything with the lighter pen to blend it together.

What is great about this stamp is that it’s very forgiving. You don’t need to be brilliant at colouring or absolutely precise, but, if you are, you’ll be able to take your time and create your own masterpiece.

Because the image truly is breathtaking, I didn’t want to cover it too much with a sentiment or extra embelishments. So, I’ve used a sentiment from the Very Versailles Stamp Set with a Circle Punch and Scallop Punch layer. These sit on a length of the Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon, also from the Mini Catalogue.

I chose to stick with my monochrome-esque theme with a Whisper White basecard and co-ordinating Petal Pink layer.

At just £15, this stamp set it so versatile, and I’ve enjoyed colouring it using different mediums. It might take a while to move off my desk, so watch this space for future posts!

Happy crafting
