Originally I had a completely different card for you guys today. I really loved the landscape Border Dies we just released and I wanted to try my hand at creating a sky featuring the Northern Lights. I loved the way it looked in real life but the camera did not love it. I guess sometimes it just works out that way.
So instead, I turned to my first loves, flowers and coloring. I hope you don't mind :)
Every time we release a solid image set I have an internal struggle. I'm not good at using solid stamps but I love the images so much. My work around for this is no line coloring. It always looks different and is super fun - once I convince myself I don't actually need a bold black outline for everything.
You can watch the whole card from start to finish in the video below.

I'm sure you noticed in the video, that even though I gave up my bold black outline, I still kept all my other little loves like the white outlining and the drop shadow. Some things just stay with you no matter what kind of card you're doing. I guess that's why we all have a "signature style".
I hope that you've found a bit of inspiration to break out those solid images and use them a little differently. Thank you so much for stopping in today!
