Morning Soft for Lois

Here is another card that I created with the Morning Soft Stamp set. I actually created three of these. I did one using chocolate chip instead of basic black. That one is pretty, but the chocolate does not POP like the black does. Then I created one using the same layout as yesterday's card, but no ribbon. Then I did this one. I think I actually like this one without the ribbon the best, -- imagine that less embellies and I like it best.

I stamped the image with Basic Black craft ink and then embossed it with black. I painted the flowers with Groovy Guava, and the leaves with River Rock. After it dried I went over all the lines again with straight reinker ink (no added water). This gave the flowers and leaves dimension.

I will be sending this card to Lois (see this post). I thought this would be a pretty card to cheer her up.

Inks: Groovy Guava, River Rock, Black Craft
