After an Easter break last week, we're back with another Stampin' Celebration challenge! I love the spring colors in this inspiration piece, and isn't the pink and green combo fun? I started with pink and green and then added the darker pink/purple from the bouquet of flowers seen in the bottom left photo.
This week I also drew inspiration from the SUO challenge #17--Mother's Day Cards and Challenge #44--a sketch challenge over at The Paper Players. I did flip the sketch on its side, but otherwise stayed pretty close. :-)
The stamp set I used is actually a sneak peek from the Summer Mini Catalog that goes live May 1st. The set is called Flower Fest, and it immediately caught my eye because almost every image in the set has a coordinating punch. :-)
I randomly stamped the images using Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry and Certainly Celery. For the main flower image, I stamped with Rich Razzleberry craft ink and then heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. For the the center of the flower, I used a yellow sharpie marker to color one of the Rhinestone Jewels.
And to finish it off, I ran Pretty in Pink satin ribbon through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die to give the ribbon the scallop edge. A simple wow technique! To see some more samples using the decorative edge ribbon technique that I presented last fall at the Fort Worth Regional SU conference, click HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to head to Stampin' Celebration to see who the Party Guest designer is this week AND the projects the members of the Design Team have created using this inspiration piece.
