Hello Lovelies! I don't remember trying a set like this before from Simon Says Stamp, but I someone who is not always excited about coloring my stamped images, I was pretty excited about the Printmaking Plant Stamp Set!
After stamping the potted plant image outlines, you can bring the image to life by stamping blocks of color that fill the outlines. I am pretty terrible at lining things up, so I feel like if I can get perfect lines here then so can you.
I made this weeks ago and was for some reason inclined to use CZ Design's Here For You diecut with a coordinating supportive sentiment from the stamp set. I went with my gut and I'm glad that I did; with everything going on in the world right now, a little encouragement can never go to waste.
Let's go block in some color for this card
