I had some time before dinner last night to work on an idea. I wanted to use this WP9 Botanical Bunch stamp. I wanted the whole image to be visible, but with the flowers highlighted and parts blending into the background. I created a mask with the small circle die from WP9 Love Mom Layers. I started by applying Nautical Navy ink with a sponge tool. I also added a bit of Black Soot distress ink towards the edges to darken it a bit.
When I was happy with the saturation of color, I removed the mask and added Ocean Drive ink to the circle. I blended the light into the dark to lighten up the area around the circle. I stamped the floral image so that the large flowers were inside the highlighted circle. I die cut the panel with the WP9 Sunshine Layers die centering the floral image rather than the circle.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment from WP9 A New Day.
Hope you're having a great week so far.
Thanks so much for visiting!
