Ornate Style

Happy weekend all. A busy but good day at the office, martini now in hand :) Various around the house plans for the weekend. Some outside, some in the office, some in the stamp room and probably some Disney movies as we try out new to us Disney+. 

My first play with the Ornate Garden Suite uses just the Ornate Style large flower! Colors are from The Color Throwdown Challenge of the week #CTD587.

Colors are listed as Pink, Gray, Green and Kraft. The SU! Colors I chose are Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake.

I stamped the image with Memento ink and let it dry. The cardstock used is a Shimmery Vanilla (contraband) but very similar to the Shimmery White that we carry. I used Stampin' Blends to color. First the leaves with Mint Macaron. I like to color the entire image with the light color, then accent and edge with the dark. So on the leaves I did up against the flowers dark and the lines. Then go over the blended area again with the light. Small flowers are Gray Granite. Center flowers and stems are Crumb Cake. Large Flowers Flirty Flamingo. Very happy with it, especially considering I haven't stamped at all for a while, and it's been FOREVER since I colored anything! Smile is from Daisy Lane. Card base is Flirty Flamingo, accent layer Gray Granite.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT weekend! Stay home, stay safe :) #keepstamping Product details and shopping links below.
