The challenge: to use gelatos for a softened background effect. I decided to turn my "Mums the Word" stamp set into peonies instead. Just for fun, now that I have a Misti, I tried using Sweet Blush ink. I rarely use it because it is so pale, it just doesn't show up on a card. But this time I stamped multiple times with the Misti and I really liked the effect. By the time I added the leaves, it was clear that a monochrome background with a subtle pink gelato was the best choice.
I'm not usually one for subtlety, but this just seemed the right way to go.
-- added a hint of accent with translucent sequins, and done.
