Big Blooms

I just have to say it. I LOVE Big Blooms! Okay... now I can move on. LOL. I've been really sick the last couple of days, so it feels good to be at my desk stampin with some bright colors. I don't have my energy back yet. I wish the laundry would just do itself. Good excuse to just sit here and play. :)

One of my favorite things to do is Versamark resist. It's a lot of fun. I took my Petals Jumbo Wheel and ran it across my Versamark pad, then over glossy card stock. You have to be gentle so that you don't smear your image. Let it dry. Then I inked up my rubber brayer with the Cotton Candy Spectrum pad and ran it back and forth over the entire piece. You apply pressure and keep rolling... the colors will blend. After that dries, you wipe gently with a tissue to wipe the ink off of the versamark. I then stamped over the top with stamps from the Polka Dots and Petals set in Only Orange and Pink Passion. I stamped the big flowers with the same colors on glossy card stock, cut them out, layered them and attached them with black Vintage Brads. The friend stamp is from JoAnn's and I used the tag corner punch to make a tag. The flowers are all on dimensionals. I had a hard time getting a good photo because the glossy was reflecting the light, but this is really pretty in person.

Thanks for visiting today..... hope you are all a great day! I need to go and get some laundry going, or the kids will be complaining about no socks. LOL.
