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:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White
  • Inks: Melon Mambo, Pistachio Pudding
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels
  • Stamps: Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Papillon Potpourri, Four You
  • Tools: Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Hexagon Hive Framelits Die, Stampin' Dimensionals, Wide Oval Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Brayer
