I made another pair of cards using the large floral image from Sketched Flowers by Simon Says Stamp. I played with my Distress Oxide inkpads to create a blended background. It really muted the image, so I used a piece of acetate in my stamp positioner to stamp it again. (I had stamped the original image weeks before.) I got it pretty close!
For the background, I used Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon, Barn Door, and Black Soot to create that lovely blend.
The sentiments are from the All About You stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. After stamping them on white cardstock, I cut them out with the matching dies. I was lucky to grab the combo on clearance last year. I popped up the sentiments with foam tape for some dimension.
I'm very pleased with these cards! They have a simple elegance.
