More Fun with Cas-ual Fridays!

You may have noticed that I've been using the Pretty Posies stamp set 
from CAS-ual Fridays quite a bit recently. I can't seem to get enough of it.
The flowers look fantastic colored or left alone as a b&w image so for this 
card I did a bit of both.

To begin I stamped the images in versamark and then heat set it with clear embossing powder.

I've never colored on black card stock before but I remembered hearing a 
tip that you should color the image with white first and then add your color. 
I'm not sure where I heard that but it's a great tip!

Originally I was going to color the edges of the flowers with another color 
but I like how leaving them white helped to connect them to the b&w image.

I think I'll try coloring on other dark colored card stock - 
I like the look it gives.

The sentiment is from a fun stamp set that was designed by CAS-ual Fridays exclusively for one of Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval collections.
It's called Young at Heart and you can find it HERE
