I love flowers. I think I have more flower stamps than are probably totally necessary but what can I say, I love flowers. My husband knows that he can’t go wrong buying me flowers for birthday, Christmas, anniversary, Valentine’s day. I certainly made it easy on him over the years. My love of flowers has certainly carried over to my stamp collection as well. My new favorite is the stamp I used here today, Picture Perfect.
Not only does the set have the lovely flowers, more on them later, but it also had a humingbird, the leaves you see on my card and even a star fish along with some lovely sentiments. All the images are ‘3 or 4-step’ stamps. That means that there are three stamps, stamped one on top of the other, to provide the shading and color combinations. It may not be evident in the picture but I also used a sponge dauber and Soft Sky in the background.
For the flowers, I used Wisteria Wonder as the base as it is the lightest shade. The second step I used Perfect Plum and for the final detail step, Blackberry Bliss. I used a different techniqe for the leaves. I only used Wild Wasabi but stamped it off on scratch paper twice before stamping on my card stock for the base layer. I stamped off once for the second level and the last most detailed stamp I used it full strength. The hummingbird is a three step also. I used Island Indigo full strength and stamped off once as well as Wild Wasabi. I really like these three colors together.
