I started off my card by stamping the beautiful floral image in Permanent Black ink onto white cardstock. Next, I used the layering stencils from the kit and small blending tools to blend yellow, orange, and pink inks onto the petals, and green inks onto the leaves. For the petals, I used Chamomile, Autumn Blaze, Coral Bliss, Warm Sunshine, and Fresh Lemon Crisp Dye inks. For the leaves, I used Bamboo and Fresh Leaf. I cut out the image using the included coordinating die and the used the die to cut two pieces of thick white cardstock. I layered and adhered the pieces together, with the colored flower on top and then set the piece aside.
Next, I removed the spray top from a bottle of Jet Black Ink Spray and used a small paintbrush to pick up a bit of ink straight from the bottle. I splattered the ink over a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock, concentrating the spray at the bottom right of the panel. Then, I stamped the sentiment in black ink. To finish the card, I adhered the floral and then adhered the card front to a card base.
