Gina K Inspiration Blog Hop Day #2!

For my card today, I used the new set by Gina called Simply the Best.   See my tutorial below on how I colored and changed up the flower image.


Step 1: Stamp the flower image 3 times on light cardstock.  On all 3 stamped flowers, color the center of the flower with EB6 Spectrum Noir Marker, then use GB6 & GB9 for the next ring of flower petals.  I used GB6 first, then added GB9 over the top, to lighten it up just a bit, I used GB6 again.  With scissors, trim one of the smallest flower centers.



Step 2: On one of the flowers, color the middle ring of flower petals, use GB7 on each petal.


Step 3: Add GB8 to the edge of each petal.  Trim the flower with scissors cutting off the outside ring of petals.


Step 4: On the third flower, color the entire flower with GB1 and then add GB7 to the edge of each petal.


Step 5: Go over the petals again with GB1 and trim with scissors.


This is a fun way to get more out of a single stamp.



Here is my color palette.
