Sending Hugs

I was so exited to see that Simon Says Stamp is having a new challenge in their flickr group.  I let the time get away from me, and am getting this entry in under the wire.  The first challenge is a color challenge, we are to use at least three from the image.

I think I have managed to use all 5 colors - my inks are from Simon Says Stamp - Sunshine, and Orange Peel, Hero Arts -Field Greens and Soft Granite, and Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger.

The stamp set is Flower Friend from Simon Says Stamp.  I first drew a light pencil line curve along the right side.  Then I stamped the flowers and leaves along that line.  I wanted a dramatic color pop, so I cut along the flower garland leaving a small white edge.  I then backed it with a piece of black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment in white.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

P. S. To view my blog-iversary post please click here, I have a give away open until September 25th, 2014.
