Because I Care - Thank you!
I finally got a chance to break out this stamp set :-) I was inspired by these photos that I found on Patty Bennett's Blog! In order to get the color I wanted I broke out the Watercolor paper and watercolored with SU Classic Ink. I started with Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink & Bashful Blue. I then added some Pretty in Pink in the Bashful Blue to give it a little lavender color as in the photos. Leaves were done in Wild Wasabi & Daffodil Delight. The image looked a little flat to me so I added some White Gel Pen on the edges of the flowers, this gave it a little more depth. It is hard to see in the photo, but I added a little bling to the flower with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. I already have it mixed in a mister with rubbing alcohol so I dipped my paint brush into it and then lightly applied to my flower. I kept the card simple as I wanted the flower to be the main attraction. If you click on the photo it will enlarge and you can see the shimmer.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by,
