Marigold Bloom


This card for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge (orange, pink & yellow) features stamps from Artistic Outpost's Bloom & Grow Plate. This is the first mounted set I've owned, and I absolutely love it. It comes mounted on EZMount cling foam, trimmed closely (no extra rubber to throw away or punch out), and comes with a pre-printed & indexed cling card for storage ... so nice.
I inked the Marigold Seed package with Yellow, Orange, and Pink chalk inks and then spritzed before stamping to blend the colors. I stamped a second time & punched out a circle form the image to spotlight the blooms (using this week's Sketch For You To Try). The sentiment was done by masking part of the Bloom & Grow sentiment from the set.
