Painted Petals Sneak Peek, MOJO375

Hello, All! I'm moving right along with my Christmas preparations. Yesterday I finished my shopping and today I plan on getting my wrapping done. Then it will be time to start baking cookies! 

Though Christmas is in the air, my card today feels way more like spring. This beautiful stamp set is called Painted Blooms, and will be available January 6 in the Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog. I love this set and can't wait to play with it some more.

The inpsiration for my layout was the simple sketch challenge at Mojo Monday. 

Painted Petals is a two step stamp set. I stamped the leaves first in Wild Wasabi. I inked up the flowers with Wisteria Wonder, then used a sponge dauber to dab some Blackberry Bliss along the edges. I used the same two colors and sponge daubers again to sponge some color onto the Irresistably Yours paper, which will be offered free during Sale-A-Bration on January 6. This paper is white with a glossy white pattern, and you can use a variety of techniques to color it.

This is so beautiful- I was playing with that stamp set last night and wondered how to get a shaded or two tone look on the blossoms- thanks for the tip. I can't wait to try it!
