Welcome to The Ton's Summer 2017 Release Blog Hop! I am honored and excited to share a few of the new sets from this release!

For my first card, I've used the GORGEOUS Fresh Cut Anemones stamps. Oh my, I see many, many color combos in the future with this set! I've stamped each flower layer with the same color of pigment ink. The first layer, I stamped once. The second layer, I stamped twice and so on. This gives all the dimension you need without having tons of ink colors! Keep layering on the ink! I hand trimmed all the blooms out along with the layered leaves. I layered all my blooms onto a white notecard that was stenciled with a light grey pigment ink. I added dimension to the smaller 2 blooms . To finish, I white heat embossed a sentiment from Fresh Cut Anemones Coordinating Outlines stamps onto a thin black strip of cardstock and trimmed it at an angle on one end. Finally, I jazzed it up with clear sequins!
For my second card, I used Summer Blooms. What I love about this stamp set is the fact that the leaves in the main floral image are SOLID. This fact lends itself to embossing which I've done here in Princess Gold Embossing Powder from Ranger onto Bristol Smooth Watercolor Paper.
My flower arrangement was then watercolored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush. Easy peasy! I also added some blue watercolor shading around the arrangement which is hard to see here but trust me, in real life....you can see it! Finally, some iridescent pink sequins were added. This whole panel was then layered with hot pink and yellow cardstocks slightly off center for a fun look.
