Lovely Day

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the Hero Arts Color Layering Flowers For You. These colour layering sets are great for adding dimension with ink pads. The colour palette for my card was inspired by the Kelly's Flowers Ink Pad set. I deviated slightly but I love the bright pink together with the aqua tones.

I started off by stamping the flowers using Bubblegum, Ultra Pink and Raspberry Jam Shadow Inks. I find it easier to use a Stamp a-ma-Jig for layering stamps but these are pretty easy to layer up without one. For the leaves I used Mint Julip and Tide Pool inks. These were then cut out using the coordinating dies.
I took a white 4.5"x5.5" white card base and then made a layer to go on the front slightly smaller. On to this layer I die cut a circle using the Circle Infinity Dies. Using the aperture piece as a guide, I stamped the sentiment from the Color Layering Peacock Stamp Set on to the card base using black ink. The aperture panel was added on top with foam tape. The flowers and leaves were then added on top using a mixture of glue and foam tape. To finish off, I added a few gems and a few white dots using a gel pen.
