Pink & Pastel Birthday card.

I love the Spring colors and I think they coordinate perfectly with the SweetStamps challenge this week- Pink.


  I initially was going to sponge on the color, but just applied it Direct to Paper using the Ink Spots. I used the Tulip Stencil over the top of the colors using In the Pink Ink. I added splatters of black and touches of a border stamp from the You Brighten My Day set. I used the stem of the flower in the same set for my flower stems, and added Kiwi Green leaves using another stamp from the same set.  Next, using a Prismacolor pencil, I added dots  and dashes in white. I used the Wink of Stella Green for the Piccolo Flourishes, and was inspired by a card by Donna K using her Piccolo's 'naked' or 'au natural', so I just added a touch of shimmer in the flower centers using the Stardust pen. The dragonfly Piccolo was embossed using the Brownstone in the center and Mossy Glen on the wings.

Supplies used are all linked to the store and can be found on the SweetStamps challenge Blog HERE.
