Just Add Ink - Add Clear Block Stamping

Hello There,

I have not partaken in any challenges for quite some time now, so I thought I would give the current Just Add Ink challenge - add clear block stamping ago.  I was playing with this technique last week and took it as a sign that the Just Add Ink team set it as a challenge that I should make a card using this technique.  I wanted to make a birthday card for a good friend of mine.  Here is the card:

I used clear blocks to create the background for the flowers as well as the backing piece for the flowers and the outline that you can see on the card.  So many ways to use clear blocks and inks in stamping.  The colours I used are pistachio pudding and blackberry bliss as well as wild wasabi and pear pizazz.

Thanks for stopping by and may the crafting force be with you!
