Sweet Pea Stamps

Oooohhhhh! I am loving these pretty stamps! I tried to keep it relatively conservative since that is how I normally stamp.  She almost screams dramatic colors!


It is relatively straight forward except I did take some Mystic embossing powder and melted it all over the image.  It gives it a nice sparkly look.  She was colored with copic markers.  The paper is Basic Grey and I used a MS border punch.  I bought my stamps HERE and had FANTASTIC service!!!

Now to tell you a little funny story.....you see the ribbon? Well, I am one of these people that doesn't like to throw something away if I can reuse it, and this is from some PJs that I bought and it had this nice pretty ribbon around them.  I am not about to throw it away, so I ironed it out and used it on my card.!!! It was the perfect color.  BTW, I have been using a bow maker for my bows.  It makes them just right!


See how she sparkles? 

Okie dokie, that's it for me, be back on Wednesday for the Simon Says Challenge!!!

Big hugs to all you sweet gals that leave me comments out there! Luv ya much!!
