Life is Beautiful

A big congrats to Faith, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the all over floral bg, but used different images, dies & colors & moved the greeting to its own layer.

I used a new multistep stamp set for my card & new Color Fuse ink pad sets in graduated colors. I like that this set also had an outline to go w/ because instead of stamping it in the darkest of the colors, I used black for more contrast. The flowers were stamped w/ the different layers of images in the 4 sets of ink colors. After I finished the bg, I cut it into 2 layers & stuck a narrow black layer between them & elevated the top one a bit. The greeting (from a new Spanish set!) was white embossed onto black & also popped up along w/ the leaves. Turned out pretty colorful for not doing any coloring at all!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
