When I finished this card, I was so pleased! It will go down as one of my best efforts in the last year or so…..I love flowers, and I knew I wanted to get this new set as soon as I saw the Summer Mini Catalog. These blossoms are just perfect, and delicate, and feminine! I used markers to color directly on the stamps and I stamped twice on the cardstock without re-inking. I used Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers. I love this bow technique which I saw on a similar card at LeeAnn Greff’s Blog. It adds such a sweet touch, and shows off the Rhinestone Brad, too.
Unfortunately, you can’t see the gorgeous SMOOCH SPRITZ that I sprayed on all the white cardstock pieces. You have to catch it in the light, and the camera shots just don’t show it off at all – bummer! But I really like the effect of the Vanilla Shimmer on the Whisper White Cardstock……..this stuff is easy to use, dries very quickly, and it’s cheap! WOOHOO! We all love a good bargain……so good that you’ll want to buy all four colors!
