Blue Floral Frame Card - Versafine Clair

Hello!  I am playing with some challenges today.  When I saw the inspiration card at the bottom of this post, the first thing I thought of was this older stamp set I have and my new Versafine Clair inkpad that I purchased just in the color Paradise.


It is a lovely ink, and it is more slick than expected!  I did smear an image at first, but it was not really a problem after I got a feel for it.  It stamp so solidly! (I also want to note that it is a touch more aqua, in real life, than pictured.)  I have all the ink cubes for regular Versafine, but I will be putting more of the Clair inkpads on my wish list as they have really great colors.  


I popped up my sentiment on fun foam, and then fussy cut out two flowers in black and popped them up too.  I like this look a lot!  It is a little bit traditional and fussy, but still has lots of white space.  I added three little dots of black Nuvo drops to finish off the card.

Supplies: Gina K Designs Made with Love stamp set, Versafine Clair Paradise ink, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Spellbinders circle die, Cuttlebug Decorative frames embossing folder, Nuvo drops black.

I would love to play along with City Crafter’s 406 Birthday Celebration with the below inspiration card!  Also, I would love to enter SimonSaysStamp’s Wednesday Challenge - Happy Birthday!

I didn't see this in the CCCB gallery - I was just visiting you anyway - but as soon as I saw it I knew it was a case of Samra's card. I love how you've adapted it but made it equally gorgeous.
