Indescribable Gift on Vellum

The flower image on the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set is so beautiful!!  Perfect for stamping on vellum!

The idea for this beautiful card comes from Becky Cowley.  I stamped the image with Momento Ink and then colored it using Blendabilities.  You could also use your markers or Blender Pen.  I turned the image over to give it a softer look.

IMG_8227In the background, you can see “happily ever after”.  I’ve used Big News and Blessed By God for the sentiments and done some Gorgeous Grunging!

March Blooms

March has snuck up on me… time for another calendar page!

IMG_6642The image is from Blended Blooms and I colored it using lots of different colors of Blendabilities.  There’s no right or wrong way to color with them.  I love the way this turned out!
