Hello, friends! After a week's absence, I'm back with a card (that I was despairing wouldn't get made ... gee, Stampin' Up! Convention saps a girl's energy!). Convention was a blast. I got to spend time with a number of special friends, including several of my fellow Just Add Ink Design Team members; we had so much fun together.
Patrice has set this week's challenge at Just Add Ink, to add pearls to your papercraft project.
I have used one of the stamps from Reason to Smile, which is a new stamp set available exclusively in June. It's a two-step floral stamp set, which I can see I'll have a lot of fun with. The 'solid' flower stamp has very fine surface detail that yields a really subtle result. I stamped this in Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White card, before over-stamping the outline flower in Basic Gray.
