Southern Serenade - Card Variations

Using the Southern Serenade Stamp set from Stampin' Up! once again, I wanted to share some variations with the same stamps used in similar ways but different colors and schemes.

Since we are not able to purchase Stampin Blends until the new catalog comes out, I decided to go old school on my coloring technique this time.  Using the inside of the stamp case or even an acrylic block as a palette, you can add some ink and blend it around with a basic blender pen as a paint brush and color your images.  This is the technique I opted for today.  It’s wise to work in light layers, and then you can build the intensity of the colors to emphasize shading where you want it.

Using the same technique, but in blue, I did the same with this card.  It reminds me of forget-me-nots.  I like the way these turned out.  What do you think?
