It’s always nice to discover a new gallery on SCS with the Featured Stamper Challenge. This week we’re CASEing cards made by blondie090277, and I chose a card from this wonderful Basic Silhouettes Gift Ensemble.
The branch image from the new Eastern Blooms set reminds me of the Garden Silhouettes stamp, and we learned a neat trick at convention last week for inking it up with several colors. First I inked up the entire image with my Cameo Coral ink pad, and then I used a blender pen to remove the color from the stems. I colored the stems with a Chocolate Chip marker and also added a little color to the hearts of the flowers, right on top of the Cameo Coral ink.
This stamp set will be on sale (15% off), along with several others, starting Monday at 2:00 PM EDT. That is when the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book &Catalog goes into effect. Check my Stampin’ Up! website for more info on Monday afternoon.
