PTI July Blog Hop entry no. 4

Here is the 4th color combo.  I just got new goodies from PTI.  One of my new sets is the Delightful Dahlia Additions.  I loved the cards Dawn made during the preview week.  However, recreating those pretty layered designs with these stamps was not as easy as I expected.  Those little shading layers are hard to line up.  Kind of like the rose layers in The Sweet Life.  I had to experiment a lot to get this right and even then, it is not always perfect.  I found that on the larger flower I needed to stamp layer 2 first, then the third layer, and then the 1st largest layer.  It was easiest to line them up that way.  For the smallest flower, the smallest details were stamped first, then the 2nd and then the last layer.  Still had lots of trouble with the small flower, so I opted for just one shading layer on that one.  Sigh.  I will keep practicing.  Maybe it was the color combo, maybe it is just my 40 year old eyes.  ;)

I used the color combo of pure poppy, raspberry fizz, berry sorbet, and new leaf.  So pretty.
