I was so excited last night when my long awaited order from the Spring-Summer preview arrived. Of course, I have to sample the new stamp sets. I chose the Embrace Life set. I love the feel of Asian theme in this set. The challenge on SCS is to make Monochromatic cards. These cards are so fun to make. My color choices are Groovy Guava and Really Rust and using the DSP Ginger Blossoms, the background speaks for itself. I popped the 2 flowers in the main image for a 3-D look. The flowers were colored with Aqua Painter using Groovy Guava with color diluted first and went over with a darker color. I ran my Blush Blossom marker for a shadowed look on the flowers then I added the Stickles last.
