Ink It Up with Heidi Shafer -- Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia

Today, I've joined again with Heidi Shafer of Mapleberry Musings
for Ink It Up.


Ink it Up is a challenge where, on the second and fourth Wednesday 
of each month, Heidi and I share cards that we've made with new stamp sets
that we haven't used yet.

Today, I'm sharing my card that I made using my 
Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia stamp set.
Here's my card:


I started of by stamping my flowers from Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia 
 in versamark and heat embossing them in white on a piece of watercolour paper.
Then, I used three different shades of Zig Markers to colour over top,
using water and a paintbrush to blend the colours.


I stamped my sentiment (from PTI KIS: Sympathy)
in Altenew Evening Grey.

Don't forget to hop over to Heidi's blog to see what
she created for this Ink It Up.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous, Leigh! I always need a few sympathy cards on hand.

Your card is so soft and pretty! I love the watercoloring. I think it's amazing that we both used a Wplus9 set without coordinating it. What are the odds? Their Beautiful Bouquet stamp sets are on my wish list!
