Stamping on Kraft Card Stock

Hi friends! I had a few versions of cards from this set "Artful Flower".
Today is another edition using the same set of stamps. Here are---Part 1  Part 2 and Part 3.

This time I stamped the flowers on kraft card stock. The key is to use white pigment ink (such as this or this) . You can either stamp the colors first, then stamp the white ink OR stamp the white first and then stamp the colors. I don't think there is a right or wrong way, it's just your preference. In this case, I stamped the white ink first. I used Simon Says Stamp White Pigment Ink

I had so much fun stamping this card that I didn't realize that I didn't have any sentiment on it. I decide to just leave it as is. 

Here is a shot of cards that uses the same stamp set.

Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Another really gorgeous card using this stamp set, Virginia! I love how the pigment ink creates a shimmer when you stamp over it with a color...so striking!

I love color on craft! Your card is beautiful!! I like the little white borders behind the coloured flowers, they make them 'pop' even more.

You've had a grand time with this set. Each of these cards is remarkable and all for different reasons. Just lovely the varied looks you got dependent on the technique used. Wonderful.

I ALWAYS learn something new when I visit your blog - now I am super intrigued and want to try this out for myself!! It will have to wait a few more days until I am completely recovered from my surgery but at least now I am up the computer for little bursts of time to comment and check things out!!! I love using kraft cardstock so I am looking forward to giving this a shot!! Thank you so much for always inspiring me!!!
