Here is my second attempt with the Build a Blossom stamp set and the Blossom Petals Punch. You may be tired of seeing these two items from me, but I aim to show you my progress and encourage you to use this stamp set, too! I have already heard from others who bought this, but hadn't tried it yet. I think it's a bit inimidating!
This time, I used the same petals and leaves, but I tried a different technique when stamping the petals. I stamped first in a lighter color, Pretty In Pink, then stamped over it (NOT trying to be perfect) in Rose Red. This is more life-like, I think. Real petals are sometimes variegated, or the edges are darker or lighter depending on variety.
Also, I think it does look better with a ODD number of petals. What do you think? What hints do you have if you are already a pro with this set and the punch?
Next time, I hope to share something other than a traditional-looking flower, so stay-tuned!
