Inspired Stamps Thinking of You Card Set

Hello and welcome here!  It time for card sets again at Inspired Stamps, don't you just love being inspired to make cards?  This time the DT are sharing Thinking of You cards...you can check out all the sets on the Inspired Stamps Blog.

Card Sizes:  4.25" x 5.5"
I used Thinking of You from the Inspired Stamp set Tags.  The awesome thing about clear stamps is that you can curve them on your block...you can see I curved the sentiment to go along the edge of the flower!  I love using bright Spring like colours for these cards.  I dyed the flowers using Copic inks...you can find my tutorial on how I did that below.

Dying Flowers with Copic Ink Tutorial
On a scrap piece of paper, colour your flower with Copic ink.
Add several drops of Colorless Blender from a refill bottle to the center of the flower.  
(The bigger the flower, the more drops you will need.)
Allow to dry, add to project.
 
 You can see how the Colorless Blender 'pushes' the colour to the edges of the petal.  And because it's alcohol ink, the flower dries quite quickly.
 
For the flowers I coloured in the cards above, I only coloured in the middle of the flower, and not down the petal sides, then when I added Copic 0, it pushed the colour to the petal edges.

Enjoy,
Deneen
