Blue On Blue Flourish!

Hello peeps…
today’s PPA challenge is brought to you by the color blue!

Blue On Blue Flourish using Falling Flowers and Labeler Alphabet from Stampin' Up! Inker's Workshop 2016

A simple resist technique makes it easy to get the look of this
beautiful Blue On Blue Flourish!

Once the flourish (Falling Flowers) is heat embossed in white, a Sponge
Dauber is used to rub color over the entire card base with Pool Party ink.
A second layer of ink is lightly applied towards the center and blended
outward using Island Indigo ink. To finish it off…a baby wipe is used to
lightly rub over the embossed section to remove any extra ink to reveal
the white design underneath. This is an easy technique for a beginner
to master!

the PPA305 Color Challenge, pop over to the web site and get some inspiration!

Do you like the look of water spots on your background?

It’s easy to achieve… just “flick” a small amount of water over the paper
and let it dry to get the look you want. Keeping a Spritzer on hand works
great for this…lightly spray some water in the palm of your hand and use
your fingers to “flick” it over the design. FYI…It pays to practice a bit first…
you don’t want blobs of water ruining your beautiful works of art!

Now you’ve seen mine, it’s time to show me yours…
get on over to and share your
masterpiece…you may be the inspiration someone needs!

Have a fabulous day!

  1. Love all your elements here..perfect layers and the soft look is so pretty! Thanks for playing along with the Pals color challenge this week!

  2. Karen, your card is so pretty, and I really appreciate that you gave a tutorial on how you did it. I’ve never tried this technique, but am going to now! Thanks for joining us for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge!

  3. Karen, had to come over and tell you what a beautiful card you posted on PPA this week. The florish is gorgeous embossed in white with the blue around and that flower just pops off the page.

  4. Karen, LOVE your emboss resist with this flourish and color scheme! So very pretty. Have not tried the water stain with the background… had to pin to remember. Thanks for playing along with the PPA color scheme this week!
