BLUSH BLOSSOM AND GOING GRAY ... I'll miss you two, too!

In the same vein as my last post, I thought I'd share with you another card made with colours we'll be farewelling from the Stampin' Up! range at the end of next month.

I'm not sure that I've ever given Blush Blossom the attention that it deserves!  As soon as I started working with it on this card, I fell in love with the colour - it's gorgeous!  I love the softness of the ink colour, especially.  I used an aquapainter, and my Blush Blossom Stampin' Pad (with ink pooled in the lid), to colour one of the white flowers from the Pretties Kit.  I adhered the flower to the card using Crystal Effects, because a glue dot wouldn't hold .... as a result, the centre of the flower turned a cloudy, pale colour, which I rather like.  I photographed my card at night, so forgive the lack of clarity - I was impatient (yet again), knowing I wouldn't be home during the day, and wanted to post this on my blog!

Card: Blush Blossom, Going Gray, Very Vanilla
Ink: Blush Blossom and Basic Gray stampin' pads
