Flowers for all occasions - Stamping With Friends Hop

 Hi everyone and welcome to our Blog Hop for this month featuring flowers... You've probably come to me from Mo's blog and I'm so pleased you've found my little corner of the web. 

The first stamp that came to mind for this theme was the Hearts and Home set.  
I love this set for many reasons but mainly because its loads of fun to colour and always comes out pretty!  However for this card, I added colour in the background using inks and the blending brushes and stamped my main floral image using Memento Black ink.  I also used blender pens to add additional colour and depth to some shaded sections in the image.
I have to admit, the other technique of embossing the panel once it's finished, is new to my card making skill set.  But its one that I am quickly loving and can see it being used lots - its instant texture and interest to a fairly simple or plain card!  Have you tried this technique yet?  
Colours used in this card: Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  
Thanks for popping by and joining us in hopping, please head over to Karen's blog by using the below button and leave comments on the project posts as you hop.
