I have two cards to share with you today both using Cornish Heritage Farms Ornamental Beauty stamp set.

For my first card I stamped the leafy scroll all over my white card using versamark ink and then white embossed them. I then used Gelatos from the Green Gelato pack (pistachio; spearmint; green tea and lime) by randomly applying the colors to the card and blending them together with my finger.

Stamps: Ornamental Beauty – Cornish Heritage Farms
Other: Green Gelato Pack (Faber-Castell); Spellbinders Frame; Oval Nestabilities; Flower Trim; Black Ink; Versamark Ink; White Embossing Powder.

For my second card today I have again used the Ornamental Beauty stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms.

This time round I used the Cobalt Blue Stamper's Big Brush Pen from the Mixed Media Aquarelle & Ink: BLUE set to color directly onto the rubber stamp and then stamped that onto the white card. I then colored the image using the Blueberry Gelato from the Gelatos Blue Pack.

Stamps: Ornamental Beauty – Cornish Heritage Farms
Paper: White; Navy
Other: Blue Mixed Media Aquarelle & Ink set; Gelatos Blue Pack (Faber-Castell); Rhinestones
