Blooming Bunch Birthday Card

I decided to splurge a bit and picked up the Studio Katia Blooming Bunch stamp set.  This floral cluster stamp is a large size stamp that dominates an A7 size card, something that I've wanted for a long time, but couldn't take the plunge.

I'm sharing my first attempt at coloring this stamp.  I stamped with Archival black ink onto Bristol cardstock with the intention of using my Zig Clean Color Brush markers.  There are flaws in my coloring performance here, but overall the result is stunning.  I kept the rest of the card simple to allow the flowers center stage.

I so enjoyed this foray that I've stamped a few more and left them in my working stack to pull out and color on a night after work where I simply need the relaxation that can come from a bit of crafting without the stress of needing a card designed and sent.  So, I'm sure there will be more of these to come in the following weeks.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
