Rainbow Bouquet

I can't tell you how many cards I've made using this Rosie Posie stamp set that I just was NOT happy with! I love the images in this set so much, but I just was not having any luck putting together a card I actually liked using it. I'm not used to stamping solid images I guess, I'm always coloring them instead, maybe that has something to do with it. 

But, I kept trying, and after 4 or 5 attempts, here's one I'm happy with.

I chose some of my new Fresh Ink pigment inks from Impress Stamps to use, because they are DIVINE! The colors are so crisp, the coverage is fabulous and they dry fairly quickly for pigment inks. I have quite a collection of colors already, and plan on acquiring more.

I was even able to add some 'shading' with Copic markers over the ink once dry, with no smudging or ruining the marker tips. Definitely my new favorite inks.

Thanks for taking a look, have a great day!
