I made this--
I stamped the big sentiment in bright orange, and the flowers in peach.
I liked them together, but it was a bit of a stark jump from one color to the other.
With my waterbrush, I roughly went over the tops of the orange letters with my peach ink, and because I was using a water soluble orange ink, I was able to do a nice blend of the two colors. It was a really nice gradient, and it made the two colors work together much better! I went really quickly, and did not try to be really fussy about it at all.
I matted my panel on some navy cardstock, and mounted that onto a gray card base that I previously stamped in gray ink with a woodgrain stamp from Hero Arts. A doily and some navy and white baker's twine finishes it off.
Or so I thought!
At the last minute before sending this card, I grabbed my clear Wink of Stella brush pen and hit the peach/orange letters with a slick of shiny stuff. Because, shiny, of course. No photo of that one, I fear.
One last look--
This one went to our niece Jessica. I hope she likes it!
