Hello! It’s been a while! I have come to the conclusion that this is just the way it’s going to be. A few posts fairly close together and then a long absence. Life has a way of interfering with my plans.
For today’s card I used the More Rustic Wildflowers stamp set and coordinating dies from MFT. The set comes with several different flower styles in a couple of different sizes, so you have a lot of versatility with your flower arrangements. I actually made this card several weeks ago while I was on vacation. I only took Distress Inks with me and didn’t have enough colors so I ended up buying new inks (had to, you know 😉) at a nearby Hobby Lobby. I don’t think I had never used chalk inks so I purchased a 12-pack of VersaMagic Dew Drop Chalk Ink Pads. The colors in this set are bright and cheery. I used are Mango, Pink Grapefruit, Red Magic, Tea Leaves, Hint Of Pesto, and Midnight Black. I really like how these inks stamped and they are water based, pigment, embossable, archival inks. I stamped the background dots with one of the stamps in the flower stamp set in the Midnight Black ink. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut. I also used the Die-namics Stitched Rectangle STAX (A2 Set 1) to cut the gray rectangle and the inside cut-out.
