Penned & Painted from Stampin’ Up!

I am sharing a card for the Global Design Project colour challenge this week.  I have used Penned & Painted and Sending Thoughts.  The words and fonts in the the sending thoughts stamp set are beautiful and just perfect for someone who need to know that you are there for them.

Isn’t the shading in the Penned & Painted stamp set pretty?  It is just two individual stamps and I have used the same colour ink and stamped it off onto scratch/rough paper for the whole flower to get a lighter tone and then stamped the Crushed Curry shaded centre without stamping off first.

I stamped the centre with Night of Navy ink and added some rhinestones and love how the flowers add some dimension.
I absolutely love the rest of the sentiment for the inside of the card and the curly whimsical font.
