Full of Beauty

This week's Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World blog is this gorgeous photo:

I just got some brand new stampy goodness from Unity (thank you Angela!!) and thought that this set, Moments in Bloom would work well for the challenge.  I love the colors in the photo so I used those and the "nature" theme as my inspiration. 

I started with a piece of Naturals cardstock and stamped it with Distressed Dots from Unity using Marigold Morning ink.  I started at the bottom laying the ink on very heavy and lightened it as I went up the card, stamping off at the very top part.  I stamped the ledger image on Aqua Mist cardstock using Aqua Mist ink and then stamped the fern image several times (stamping off for the lighter ones) using New Leaf ink. 

The flowers are those fun, layered and crumpled flowers seen all over stampland these days.  They could be roses, right? *wink*   I inked the edges of the darker one with white ink and the smaller one with Berry Sorbet ink and added Blush pearls to the center of both.  I hand cut the leaves and crumpled them up before adding them behind the flowers.

It may look black, but the dark layer beneath the main image as well as the sentiment are both Smoky Shadow - a nice charcoal gray.   I probably would not have found this color combo on my own but I love how this one feels! 

Thanks for checking in today friends!  Have a great weekend!
