Colour drop flower


You may have seen the card I blogged last week using my new MFT colour drop dies. Today's card uses the stamps and dies. Now I had some rouble stamping them at first but after some advice on Facebook I was told I needed to get rid of the coating on the stamps by using an eraser or stamping with Versamark wiping it off on my palm then stamping with coloured ink. I did have to stamp them about four times to get an even colour but each time I use them they are getting better so the tricks work. I am so grateful I have a Tim Holtz stamping tool allowing me to stamp multiple times in the same place.

I love this colour combo. The dots are included in the stamp set (there are various sizes).  I added some washi tape and a pretty embellishment from The Works. They are getting more and more crafting stuff in there which is good. The sentiment is another of the free dies with this month's Papercrafter magazine.

Beautiful bold colours Marianne.
I always rub my solid stamps gently with a very fine emery board before I first use them.

Great card Marianne, love the pretty brad. The Works is really useful for embellishments and pretty trims like the crochet lace they stock and I love that you can order online and get it delivered to your local store to collect :)
