For my card I used the new Concord & 9th, Flourish stamp set along with Sophisticated Script for my sentiment. There was just something about this pretty floral set that made me want it, it has a romantic old fashion feel in my opinion and I love the fact that you can build using the different stamps from the set.
To create my card, I inked up each of the stamps, one at a time with the following distress ink colors and then misted the inked up stamp with water before stamping: crushed olive, picked raspberry, worn lipstick and spiced marmalade. I also cleaned the large stem stamp and inked up just a portion of the leaves and added two extra leave images and flowers. Once my stamping was done, I misted my watercolor paper and took a paint brush and ran it around the edges of some of the flowers to soften the edges. When I first saw the Sophisticated Script set I was a little intimidated thinking it would be hard to line up and stamp with but boy was I wrong, it was so easy stamping the hello sentiment on my card. I know I'll use this set for years to come, it has such a beautiful handwritten look to it. Once all of my stamping was done, I used foam tape and adhered it to my card front which I had added a strip of black cardstock to, and then I added on some iridescent sequins.
