A Flower For You

(This is my second post for today...please feel free to scroll back to see my earlier post for today's Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Sneak Peeks!!)

Howdy folks! Susana recently released the Sweet Meets Sassy Collection #2 at SCACD...these gorgeous stamps were designed by artist Victoria Case exclusively for SCACD. There are two sets of stamps in the collection: "Hearts and Hugs" and "Retro Crew". For my card today, I inked up "Rosie" from the Retro Crew set. I used Spellbinders to cut out and frame the image. That gorgeous fabric flower is from Prima ("De Soie") and I made my own pearl flourishes with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White. I love pearl flourishes, but they are often pricey...the Viva Decor Pearl Pens are definitely a pocket-book-friendly alternative. :) The striped and polka-dotted papers are from a MME Stella and Rose paper pack, and the pink and white paper is from the Bo Bunny Gabriella collection. (You can check out Susana's amazing selection of 6x6 paper packs by clicking on the link.)

Rosie was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. While the image was still in the Spellbinders die, I sponged around the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59 Dress: BG72, BG75, C5, C7, R32, R35, R37 Rose: R22, R27, R59
