Close to my Heart Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book Blog Hop 3

This beautiful paper is from Ariana Paper Pack. The stamp is from Inspiration Flourishes stamp set. I used the boarded punch and a little Outdoor Denim ink to set the scallop edge apart.  Lastly, I used the Jute Ribbon to add interest. 

The image is one stamp. I inked the entire image in Olive ink, rolled the bottom of the image (the words) in Outdoor Denim ink. I then inked the flower in Sorbet by using the corner of the ink pad. Lastly, I carefully rolled the top of the flower in Ruby ink.  I huffed on the stamp before stamping to reactivated or remoisten the ink. I then picked the stamp up and moved slightly down and to the right to re-stamp the image to give it depth.

I hope this inspires you to create!
