Wishing You All Kinds of Happiness...

(This card is the one shown in my post below, but here's the deets on it.)

Just playing with a new-to-me stamp set that hadn't discovered ink yet, and some new CTMH colours -- Gypsy and Cotton Candy.  Aren't they yummy together?  I threw in a little Bamboo and Buttercup, too.

I used a waterbrush to paint the ink onto the little girl, after I stamped and clear embossed the image.

I also lazily pleated the ribbon.  I didn't want to pull out my sewing machine to do a simple gathering stitch, so I cheated and ran a piece of ScorTape down the backside of the Cotton Candy CS, then just pleated it as I layed the ribbon down, tucking and securing the ribbon ends down on the backside before adhering it to my card front.

Ain't she cute?

Happy creating!  :)

Hi Vicki - yes, yes, I agree that Cotton Candy and Gypsy are very pretty together and I think the bamboo and buttercup are a great off-set - you are such a wiz (oops! not intended) with the color combos. Hugs!!
