Lotus Blossom Card -- Mojo Monday 383 Sketch Challenge

Hello!  I had a great day stamping with some fabulous ladies at my "Sale-A-Bration" stamping class! We used lots of Sale-A-Bration items for our projects today, and I think one of my favorites is the Lotus Blossom Stamp set.  Here is the card we made:

I got the design idea for this card from the Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge on Monday, February 2, 2015.  This is the Mojo Monday 383 Sketch Challenge design, and I love how it turned out!

Here is the detail of the front of the card:

I LOVE Blackberry Bliss and the gorgeous Painted Blossoms Designer Series Paper in the Occasions Catalog.  I also used a little strip of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to give it a little shimmer.

Here is the inside of the card:

I used Blackberry Bliss ink to stamp the flowers.  The smallest detail stamp was stamped with "full-strength" ink, the slightly larger stamp was stamped with "half-strength" ink (stamp off one time on scrap paper, then stamp on top of detail stamp with remaining ink on the stamp).  The final background flower stamp was stamped off 2 times on scrap paper, then stamped on top of the other blossoms on the card.  I did the same technique for the stem.  The stem detail stamp was inked in Wild Wasabi ink and stamped onto the project, the larger stem stamp was inked in Wild Wasabi ink and stamped off once on scrap paper before stamping it on the card.

Here are the supplies I used to make this elegant and easy card:
