Ink To Paper Transformation Tuesday {hello}

Welcome to this week's Ink To Paper  Transformation Tuesday post! When I made my original card {see below}, I had so much fun working on creating a realistic looking Terracotta pot, but ended up by covering it up quite a bit. For today's transformed design, I chose to let the pots take center stage. I used the same retro color combination because it reminds me of my childhood and these bright flowers just exude happiness! 

To create the pots, I used my mini MISTI to do all of the stamping. The stamp set that I used for both cards is called You are my Happy. I added Fine Linen ink to the left hand side of the pot and added Terracotta Tile ink to the right hand side at a slight angle. I used my smallest blending brush to tap the ink from the far right side and move it over slightly. I repeated these steps until I got the desired effect. 

 I really love the results that I was able to achieve with such an easy technique. I know I will be trying this again, but with some brighter colors like Hawaiian Shores or Tropical Teal. Once the post were finished, I die cut them using the You are my Happy die collection and set them aside.
 I die cut a white panel using the Nesting Basics Pierced Rectangles and then stamped the stems for the flowers using a combination of Green Parakeet ink and Simply Chartreuse ink. I used my MISTI for these as well to make sure I got the alignment just right as well as the saturation of the colors.
 The flowers were all die cut using the coordinating dies as well and then I used my mini MISTI to get them all stamped quickly. Once I had all of the pieces stamped and ready to go, I got to work assembling the card. Everything is adhered to the card using foam squares for dimension. I used a piece of Bitty Big: Green Parakeet pattern paper underneath the focal panel for just a pop of added color and pattern. 

The sentiment is nestled between the two pots for a fun little "hello", so to speak! LOL! I added some black ink splatters using a black marker and my color spritzing tool. A few sparkling clear sequins finish off this design! Thanks for fluttering by!
