First up is my try at the Lotus Blossom SAB stamp set.
I absolutely love this stamp image and after seeing various lovely creations had to have it.
I discovered that this is one stamp you definitely need to experience with in order to get the desired distinct three shade effect. I had the best results when using black as my darkest colour.
I found that the contrast between my light and dark colours was not sufficient and had to stamp off the lightest to get it just right.
Here's a peek at the finished inside of the card as well. I opted for a third colour combination.
