Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.  I was looking at all the new 2011 Silhouette Stamps that Hero Arts has in their collection (I don't have any yet) and I was wondering why we always ink up Silhouette stamps with black.  So I set out to experiment with different ink colors.

I used this Rubber Stampede The Magic of You (#3818F) stamp and inked it with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.  I also sponged the edges of the circle with the same ink, as well as the edges of the paper doily.

Here is a close up of the image.
The background paper is from Prima, Fairy Flora 6x6 stack.  Love this stuff!

The daisies and the swirl were cut from separate Sizzix dies.
The centers of the flowers were filled in with pink Flower Soft.

  I used Cyrstal Stickles to frame the circle
and brighten the daisies.  A gingham ribbon to finish it off.  I cut the leaf shapes from scraps of the glitter green paper, then ran them through a crimper on an angle.

Here is what I used.

Try stamping a Silhouette stamp with a colored ink.  I like how it turned out and it looked great in many colors that I tried.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later...............
