Impression Obsession "Hello" challenge and some Cards for OWH

Hello again!
Well, I decided to come back today and post a card for the Impression Obsession "Hello" Challenge.  This group of cards started out as a thank you card for my neighbor.  She brought over a big bag of stamping supplies for me.  There were all kinds of goodies in the bag.  Among the goodies was this really cool background stamp from Inkadinkado.  And, I have been wanting to try my new Ornate Dandelion (H2155) stamp from Impression Obsession.  So, I combined the two and made up about six of these cute cards.  One went to my neighbor, of course, and the rest will go in my box for Operation Write Home.  (Oh and I might keep one for a sample.)  Here is the Hello version.

I stamped the background stamp with Blushing Bride ink (Stampin' Up) and the Dandelion with Chocolate Chip ink (SU).  The Hello stamp is from Inkadinkado.  Here is a close up.

Fabulous image!!  I added  a sheer pink ribbon and some pick pearls for accents.  I loved how this turned out so I just kept stamping and stamping and stamping in different ink colors.  And here is what I ended up with.

I will show you individual photos of each card too.

Ink Colors: Bordering Blue (SU) for background and Danube Blue (Memento) for Dandelion.

Ink: Crushed Curry for background and Chocolate Chip for Dandelion (both SU).  For this example, I colored in the leaves with a green marker.

This is the one that went to my neighbor and friend, Del.  Ink; blushing Bride and Chocolate Chip (SU).

Inks: Crushed Curry (SU) and Black (Memento).  And here, the leaves were colored in with a green marker.

 Ink: Bordering Blue (SU) and Black.

Aren't these fun cards?!!   I just love them.  They were pretty quick and easy too.  Now, I am done for the day.  See you later.  I will show you a  Steampunky style card that I made for my nephew's birthday later.  Love ya.
