Is Your Garden in Bloom?

Hello Stampers
 
So...each month I host a swap with my VIP Stampers.  The theme for the month of February was Spring/Flowers.  All you need to do is to sign up to the list, stamp one card and send it to the person below your name....and it's so much fun to receive a hand stamped card in the mail instead of bills and yuck mail.....so this was the card I created for my swap partner for February.
 
 
The stamp set I used was Garden in Bloom Item # 139433 in the annual catalog. 

 
The colors I used were Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaroon and a little Soft Sky.  These colors soon will be retiring when our new annual catalog comes out in July...and then a new color combo of five will be released...so exciting..but if you are loving these colors, you'll want to make sure to stock up on the colors and all their coordinating embellishments before they are gone!  They will sell out quickly once the retired list comes out. 

 
For the background, I used the Basic Black marker and "flecked" on the ink.  Just but using the brush tip of your maker and the cap of the marker, you just kind of fleck on the color onto the cardstock and it gives a splatter look to your card...you can do as little...or as much as you like. 
 
I love this stamp set and I think you'll also want to add this to your collection.
