Stamp Addicts Demo Day Card 1

So finally here is one of the cards from last Saturday. I stamped the large design square 3 times onto white card then stamped it again onto scrap paper. Using a craft knife I cut out the square following the inside line to create a reverse mask - imagine a square aperture in a piece of paper. This was then placed over each stamped square in turn so that I could stamp the flowers within the squares. As I knew I would be colouring the flowers with the Polycolor pencils and Zest It blending solution combined with paper/blending stumps, I did all my stamping with Graphite Black Brilliance as I have found that StazOn tends to bleed slightly when you add the blending solution. If you click on the image you should be able to see that I also very lightly stamped some green dots into the squares as well just to take away the starkness of the background. I stamped the background papers (Daisy Bucket) with a Judikins flourish stamp using the Graphite Black Brilliance inkpad too.
