In the Middle

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge uses "middle" for the inspiration.  I immediately thought of a black and white image with one element colored.  The stamp is around 12 years old...and probably hasn't seen ink in 10 years.  (Does that make me a stamp hoarder?)

I stamped on watercolor paper with Watering Can Archival Ink.  Most of the flowers are lightly watercolored with gray ink.  The yellow flower was colored with Distress Inks.

The sentiment was computer generated.

I repeated the look with rust colored embossing ink and watercolor.  Not bad...but I think I like the gray better.

Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Love how the one colored flower stands out. Pretty card! :)

  2. What happy and inspiring cards these are! The sentiment and how you reflected the sentiment with the one special flower was perfect! It was also interesting to see it in two different color applications. I do like them both and was so impressed at how modern and vibrant you made that 12-year-old stamp look! And it's perfectly okay to be a stamp hoarder because then I won't feel like the only one. ;) Amazing work here and I'm so glad you shared these with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
