Bloom....

Back with a card for One Layer Wednesday.  This week Susan challenged us to do some ink layering on our cards.  Ink layering is something I tend to do when I'm making one layer cards.  I like stamping an image in one color of ink and then layering a sentiment over the image using a darker ink.   But usually I just keep it to two inks.  For this card I used more than just two inks. 



For the card I got out two of my older PTI sets, Text Box and Spiral Bouquet.   The Text Box set contains a set of rectangles that have different images on them.  For my card I actually turned one of them over and inked up the flat, blank side and stamped it on the cardstock using Memento New Sprout ink.  I then layered the stem from Spiral Bouquet over the rectangle using SU!'s Pear Pizzazz ink.  The flower heads were stamped using SU!'s Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo.  Finally, I stamped the word "Bloom" from Spiral Bouquet using Pear Pizzazz and then layered "where you are planted" over that using Melon Mambo.    I really like how the card turned out.

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; Stamps:  PTI Text Box & Spiral Bouquet; Ink:  Memento New Sprout; SU! Melon Mambo; Pretty in Pink; Pear Pizzazz
