It's August in Arizona, so it's hot, hot, hot! We have these huge monsoon rain/dust/wind storms that provide much needed rain. It's also the time that those of us still in Arizona tend not to be outside a lot.
So, it's one of the times when I can spend more time with my stamps, ink and paper.
When I agreed to be the Stampin' Pretty Guest Stamper for the week, I knew I needed to do something outside MY comfort zone. I'm a pretty "clean and simple" gal, so flowers and punches and blendabilities are definitely things I don't do a lot.
I had fun trying out the Blendabilities on an image stamped with our Classic Ink. I did hold my breath for the first petal to see if it would smudge, but as you see, it worked like a charm.
This is an all purpose card I made just to have on hand. I know it will be sent to a "forever home" soon.

Does the color combination sound familiar? Originally, I planned to use our great Flowerpot Designer Series Paper and set up the colors from that. But, I chickened out -- that will be my next challenge to conquer.
Thanks for stopping by.
