August Stamp of the Month - Artwork #5

The soft look of this card comes from tone-on-tone color. The leaf image to the left and the small flower images below are created by stamping with same color ink on same color cardstock.

To contrast the soft colors, some shine and sparkle is added with Liquid Glass in the big flower center, and Stardust Glitz Glitter Glue in the tiny centers of the little flowers below.

There is a technique included on this card that ties the whole thing together. Can you spot it? All the cardstock edges are slightly distressed. The white core on our colored cardstocks are gently exposed with this technique. It softens the entire look overall.
