I'm super late posting today!! I'm usually up at the crack of dawn and this morning it wasn't until 7:15 which is usually the time I am on the highway off to my full time job in the city. Acckkk!! It was a quick grooming and never mind checking my look 3 or 4 times before Frankii the dog and I were off and running.
This week's card went to a friend of mine that celebrated a birthday on August 1st. She loves pink. I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and inked up the Floral background stamp with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and brayered a bit of Spun Sugar over it to soften it up a bit. Once that was dry I applied Versamark (direct to paper method) and covered that with clear embossing powder. Unfortunately I could not capture the glossy sheen that this method created.
To make it "pop" even more I layered that on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and used Whisper White as base. I think the grosgrain ribbon that was layered on top of White Organza ribbon is Pretty In Pink. I did a ribbon share a long time ago of many different colors and have plenty of it left. It matched up pretty good. The butterfly die (Spellbinders Les Papillons Two) was cut 3 times, twice with Whisper White and once with pink glitter cardstock. I layered those 3 pieces together with Glossy Accents and added two rhinestones to the body.
Here's a closer look.
The Happy Birthday was stamped with Worn Lipstick and I did some sponging with that ink too once I cut the label die cut.
Regina I hope you like the ribbon. I'm really trying to use it :)
Regina your mission this week is to use PINK. I don't see you using it very often. Are you up to the challenge??
