STAMPlorations inspiration #39

More fun for you with the Floral Bliss set today. I was inspired by this H&M catalog, by the colors that kept reappearing - blue, mustard and gray. So I went with it!



Three flower images, three pigment ink pads and three masks were all I needed. Stamped and masked and stamped and masked and stamped.

BTW, notice how I did not follow the gallon/quart/pint rule, but rather have the same number of blooms of each color. Your eye really doesn't know where to rest and keeps moving all over the place, seeming to create movement. Almost like the blooms are falling from above. Do you see that too or is it just me?

Then to finish it off I used a die from Winnie and Walter's The Big, the Bold and Comfort Cutaways. Stacked it and lightly inked it (a la Laura B.) with some yellow and blue.



Take a look at the other cards from the Inspiration DT over at STAMPlorations and join us in the CASE Playground if you have a chance!

I'm joining the STAMPtember fun at Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday since I used a stamp. A few times ;)  And the Simon Wednesday Challenge since I didn't use designer paper! Thanks for visiting.

Great card! And fun to see that you get inspired by an H&M catalog. I've kept some of them to maybe use a few pages for art journaling but I've not yet thought of being inspired by the colors therein. Now I think I should take another look at them with a new focus.
