March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Stamp of the
Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring March’s Stamp of the Month, Floral Happiness, a set of 16 stamps.  If you have came here from Maria’s Blog,
you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can
start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way,
you can find a complete list of participating consultants here.

My roses and leaves were stamped with the Whimsy Collection Pigment Inks, fussy cut and then layered onto my card.  The pigment inks are a great choice for getting smooth coverage on large solid stamps.  My bow is made out of Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon which was colored with a Blush alcohol based marker.  Coloring ribbon with your markers will give you a smooth streak free finish that dries in seconds!

My card is based on the sketch challenge at The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge:

And the color challenge at Inspired by Stamping Inspirational Challenge:

I kept the inside CAS, adding an additional fussy cut flower in the corner.
