Two Toned Stamped Flowers

Hello.  I'm here with a Make It Monday card.  Today's caught my eye because I have been stamping two toned peacock feathers lately :)


I followed Melissa's technique when I colored the flowers from Beautiful Blooms II.  I used SU cubes in Lovely Lilac and Orchid Opulence.


The two step SU Wild Rose set was used for the leaves (Amuse grass & moss) and rose buds (Amuse wheat & ocean)  The tall wispy flower is from PTI Life (SU lovely lilac & Amuse heather).  The sentiment is from PTI Damask Designs (Versafine black).


And hiding in the back is that versatile peacock feather.  That makes three very different cards using the same stamp.  I sure am getting my money out of it.  You can see the other cards here & here.


I also wanted to share with you my technique for achieving the multi colored feather.


First I stamped it in Amuse grass.  Then I used a sponge to add color in layers starting with SU really rust and Amuse ocean for the center.


I love the soft blended look.  I can see doing this with quite a few stamps in my collection.


Thanks for stopping by ~
Rebecca
