Melon & Pistachio!

Hi Stampers! Dig out your Brayer for today's project as I have a cool background on my card and I know you are going to want to try it! Take a look:

I just LOVE the way Melon Mambo and Pistachio Pudding Inks look together, don't you?

All I did was ink up my Brayer and started at one end rolling the ink towards the center diagonally. I kept adding ink at the beginning to make it darker to lighter in the center. I flipped my cardstock 180 degrees and added the 2nd color in the same manner. The lightness in the center is where both colors met and merged:

I then stamped all of my flowers using the same ink colors. I even added some grunge to my Hexagon Hive shape with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in the same colors also. Here are the Stampin' Up! products I used:
