Layers of Color Monday - Flowers

Happy Monday All!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. It was forecast to be chilly back home, so I happy to be out in San Diego now! :)

I have two cards to share this morning, both are made using Layers of Color stamps and are showcased in my gallery on the Layers of Color site.

This first card was created using the Architectural Block set. Each piece of this rose flower was stamped with one individual stamp, forming a whole flower. I colored the image with a blender pen and re-inkers. The cardstock colors are Cranberry Crisp and Chocolate Chip. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Fresh Cuts set. I embellished this card with paper piercing and the hodgepodge hardware piece in pewter.

The second card was made using the same stamp set, but with a different floral image. This one is a sunflower and I kept the pieces apart to add the ribbon as a focal point. I also colored this image with a blender pen and re-inkers. The cardstock colors are Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, and So Saffron.

These are two similarly crafted cards, using the same stamp set, but each creating a very different design.

Hope you like them! Thanks for visiting. Have a great Monday!

Happy stamping!! :)
