This week's Arranged with Love card is completed in soft pinks and yellow. I'm sure most of you know this beautiful stamp was designed by Melanie Muenchinger. It coordinates perfectly with "A Year of Flowers". The image was inked with VersaFine then clear embossed. I used Peerless Transparent Watercolors and a Niji Water Brush, using several shades of pinks for the flowers. With these watercolors you can achieve a nice soft effect or layer the color for intense color. The background colors are barely banana and rose red. I used a Fiskars punch around the edges of the pink card stock. A small pink bow was added in the corner and three flat-back beads were added as well as a dragonfly that was stamped on acetate. Can you see the dragonfly? It doesn't show up very well in the photo.
There are so many things you can do with this beautiful stamp. I hope you have ordered yours from Gina K Designs.
Melanie is also featuring two cards on her Blog today that I designed. These are cards that open up to reveal a Gift Card. One of the cards is about a fourth the size of a regular card. Be sure to check it out here to see how I made a much smaller version.
I hope you will come back here and let me know which one you like the best.
