Happy Friday! And it truly is a wonderful Friday, I’m really excited to be sharing today’s card as part of The Gentleman Crafters Design Team. The whole of pride month I was desperately trying to think of an idea to celebrate and I had nothing. Soon after this little idea pops into my head and the sentiment from the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set .
FLOWERS OF FRIENDSHIP STAMP SET
Create elegant handmade cards with the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set . The flower imagery of the set mixes simplicity and elegance. It’s perfect for different colouring and stamping techniques. The set includes beautiful thank you and friendship sentiments that will make anyone’s day! This stamp set is also available in French and German.
I love an Ombre effect. It’s just a simple way to create a wow and our Blending Brushes  our just perfect for it. Could you guess that they are my favourite tool? Now I personally have a brush for each colour family, i.e. Reds, Blues, Greens etc. This isn’t needed though just my choice. It did make this card a lot easier as I quick coloured all the hearts. These hearts are from the Give it a Whirl Dies .
With a rainbow there is only one background to have – Black. It just helps make all the colours pop! This being said I wanted to break up all the colour with a white ink splash with the Whisper White Reinker . It just a small touch has a huge impact. I wanted the sentiment to stand so I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink  onto Basic White Card . This sentiment is the only reason for me buying Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set . I used my Stampin’ Up! Trimmer  to cut this down just to ensure it was straight. Talking about straight I didn’t want to sentiment to be straight, I wanted the imperfection just to give it interest.
