Look Ma, No Stamps!

I can’t remember the last time I made a card without using any stamps (it’s been a while!). I did use ink, though, and I have a Pink Pirouette thumb to prove it! I pushed the white flower from the Pretties Kit into the ink pad with my thumb until it was totally covered. Didn’t expect it to turn out so dark, though.

When I saw Kristina Werner’s Color Inspiration Challenge #44, I remembered having a lot of retired Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper left over in my stash. So I used two prints from the package, one in Pretty in Pink, and one in Close to Cocoa. The sentiment is a Chocolate Chip rub-on from the Chit Chat package. The flower was further embellished with a clear button, a corduroy button, and some retired pink gingham ribbon. Oh, and I used Fall-To Layout #32 from the clean & simple stamping blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
