Today’s card was made with my favorite FREE stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure! It’s called “Lotus Blossom” (can be found on p.7 of the brochure). It’s a 7 pieces Photopolymer stamp set that include 3 stamps to form one flower, so you can get some of the details of the flower with another color or darker shade! It’s really cool! For my card, I used Soft Sky as the lightest color, Baja Breeze and Lost Lagoon. You can also use only 2 ink colors and stamp off the lighter color before stamping your project (that way it will appear lighter.)
In the background, I used the Sale-a-bration “Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Paper” (also a free item from the Sale-a-bration)! This white paper has glossy white pattern on it that are “revealed” as you apply some ink on it! I used Wild Wasabi ink for this one, and simply sponged it on top with a sponge dauber.
