Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Blended Bloom


The inspiration image at The Card Concept's this week is a beautiful elegant bouquet of flowers on a thanksgiving/fall table setting.

Since we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, I took my design cues from the cluster of flowers and the colour palette.

I masked off my centre panel and stamped the Blended Blooms stamp in Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss and Early Espresso. I then sponged Blushing Bride around the edges and painted over the panel with Wink of Stella Clear which caused the colours to wash and bleed a bit which gave a beautiful marbled effect.

Here is the image:
