Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop
Today I'm participating in Papertrey Ink's monthly Blog Hop! I'm so excited to join since it's been a while since I got to play along. :( This month, the challenge issued is to use a stamp that has yet to be inked. Sadly, I have several sets that qualified :( ... but I chose one I've had for almost a year as it was released February of 2010---> Year of Flowers: Violets.
Here's my card:
I intended for this to be a CAS (Clean & Simple Card) but you know it's my Kryptonite & I couldn't stop at just stamping the background & sentiment... sigh...
I stamped the larger violet in a mixture of clear embossing powder & glitter so it is sparkly IRL depending on how you hold the card. I stamped the smaller violet on Plum Pudding CS 4 times & colored it in a bit with Copics (V12,V15, V17, V000, Y18). Then I cut out the middle section, layered it with foam tape, & added a purple blingie to the centers.
Here's a closer peek:
Here are the innies:
But... because you know I can't stop at this...I thought hmmm... what would it look like with a little more...
so here's a little more...
ok, I'm done... really... ok maybe I'll add just a little bit of........
Thanks so much for peeking today! I'm off to check out what sets you have all neglected too ;)
