So Kind

Time for a new challenge at Time Out Challenge #82 is a Theme Challenge - Flowers with an optional twist of "Kissing" - using two stamps for stamping one image. Tutorial HERE.

The challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers with a $15.00 random winner for those who twist.

This is my take:

I used the kissing technique on the flowers and stems on my card. The background is blended with distress inks with water sprayed and water droplets dropped on the background.

Please go over to the Time Out Blog and check out the inspiration created for you by the Design Team. Create a flower-themed card with or without the twist of the kissing technique, and play along with us by linking up to the gallery.

Love the look of those bright and happy kissed flowers. And, your blended ink background is stunning. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

That ink blended background is awesome! At first glance I'd thought it was patterned paper! I am terrible doing the green into blue thing it always goes wrong - you've perfected it and managed to get dimension in your 'fields'. What a great use of this image - it's perfect for kissing - and I love the offset border. So many techniques yet it stays simple - brilliant card Stephanie. Jenny x

So fabulously happy and springy Stephanie! Love your coloring and the dimension on your flowers. So glad to see you in the gallery at CASology.

I think that we were similarly inspired by this challenge - the colours of our flowers are similar and we both used texture dots for the kissing :) Your card really feels like Spring - the flowers are so pretty and I love how they stand out against the soft background!
