I’ve got another simple card using the Varied Vases Bundle (stamp set and Vases Builder Punch). This time I’m using shades of blue, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana to be exact. Seem to me that no matter what I do with this stamp set, I end up with a gorgeous card…it’s just that good!
The base of the card as well as all the layers are Whisper White. I only added color in the use of the Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon and the inks, but isn’t it amazing the amount of interest that can be created with a little shading and water coloring?
I stamped the vases with Bermuda Bay ink, then picked up some ink with an Aqua Painter and color washed each vase and allowed them to dry before punching them out with the vases Builder Punch. The stems and sentiment were stamped in Memento ink then the flowers were stamped with Coastal Cabana. The two flowers on the outside were stamped full strength while the center flower was stamped off first to get a lighter shade of the Coastal Cabana. Once all the stamping and water coloring was completed, I popped the vases up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give them more depth.
