Sweet Stamps - Pearls and Lace

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Pearls and Lace.

 Oh I had to grab the Prima Nature Garden Pad for this challenge- paired with a floral image....!  I cannot wait to see what you create- come join us for a girly challenge, won't you?

 The image is stamped with black Memento Black Tuxedo ink and colored with Copics- then I added a highlight on the blossoms with the Sakura Gelly Roll pen- best invention ever!  I used Shades Die Ink to highlight around the inside edge of the die cut and around the outer edge of the Prima papers. I also added highlights on the raised embossing that was stitched onto the lace. Can you see the machine stitching on the border of this card- and the stitching where I attached the lace? IRL- the color is more pink- the cardstock is Blushing Bride by SU...........
Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Entwined Roses image HERE
Just For You Sentiment HERE

Memento Black Tuxedo Ink HERE
Copic Sketch sets -Both Reds, Green and W's HERE

We got a LOT of snow right after Christmas and we've had a few more inches this week ... but these COLD temperatures is brutal ... I tell you I am already anxious for Springtime.
Take care my friend & stay warm!
