Happy Friday! I hope you've had a fabulous week!! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog I chose Easter cards as the theme for our Fabulous Friday designs since it will be here shortly. I decided to use my new Birthday Bloom stamp set that I recently ordered - I usually don't enjoy coloring OR cutting, but this flower was just too pretty to pass up!
I decided to keep the embellishments clean and simple so that the focal point of the card would be this gorgeous flower. I colored the image with stampin' write markers - blushing bride, garden green, rose red and wild wasabi - and added a small bit of pink pirouette seam binding ribbon. The wild wasabi background piece has texture added from the Big Shot and Stylish Stripes textured impressions folder.
This photo is a close-up of the flower - can you see the glimmer that I added to the rose red parts of the flower using a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush? In real life it really shimmers and shines!
Here's one more view of my project... I love these colors together! Bring on Spring!! For even more ideas and inspiration for your hand-stamped Easter cards, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created.
