Pink Blossoms

Good morning, Friends! What a fast week this seems to be! I am so excited that I get my hair cut today! But I have a lot to do before I leave again tomorrow morning. I hope I can get my act together and stay organized. I also need to get packed and then there is shoebox this evening. So I need to get a project together. And the laundry needs to get done... But first coffee!!

Today's card was an experiment with coloring and a new color combination!

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • On a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White, stamp the greeting from Birthday Blossoms using black StazOn ink and color the banner part with a Pink Pirouette marker
  • Stamp the blossoms image around the card using Pink Pirouette ink
  • Tie a piece of Cucumber Crush dotted lace trim around the panel and adhere to card base with dimensionals
  • Stamp the flower image and the leaves image onto a piece of Whisper White and color in using Cucumber Crush, Rich Razzleberry and Tip Top Taupe inks and an aqua painter - Note: I used alcohol in my aqua painter instead of water (that was the experimental part)
  • Use the Pansy punch to punch the flower out and cut the leaves out 
  • Adhere leaves to back of flower and adhere flower to card with dimensionals
  • Add rhinestones to card and flower center
The alcohol in the aqua painter worked great! I think I will be doing that more often! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
