Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card

Can I just say how much I LOVE the Delicate Dahlias stamp set from the Sale-a-bration Catalog?!  Delicate Dahlias is a Two-Step  stamp set which is so easy to use because it is a photopolymer stamp set, which means you can see through the clear stamp to line things up.  The stamp set is also a “Dist-INK-tive” style stamp which means the image has depth and shading to make it more realistic.  Notice all the shading on the flower?  That’s done simply by stamping it once!

Color Combo

I created more depth to the image by popping up a second layer of flower on top of the first.
