I really love the Blended bloom single stamp - it's so pretty and it looks stunning coloured or left as an outlined image. I've been working on some swap cards for my upline's demo meeting this coming weekend and I've been playing with all the NEW stamps in the annual catalogue. I've always liked the Blended Bloom stamp, and use it quite often. I decided to stamp just the outline, no colour... instead, I drew random doodles of lines, dots, squiggles, whatever I felt like drawing using the Project Life Journaling Pens. I cut out the bloom and layered it onto a piece of Basic Black that I stamped with White StazOn ink.
I'm a sucker for black, and I use black on almost all of my projects for the contrast. What's better than black and white for a bold look! I decided to add a pop of gold, it's funny I've never been one for gold - I've always been a silver girl myself... but gold is the new silver - so they say!
I am happy with how this card turned out, but I decided to go with a different design for my swaps... I'll share that one next week! Have a beautiful day :)
