A Splash of Pink


Here's card #2 from Monday's battle with my mojo!  I decided to play along with the Play Date Cafe's colour splash challenge.  This is quite an old Unity stamp (from 2009!) that has never seen any ink.  I thought of it immediately when I came to this challenge and was glad to give it a chance to see the light.  I used some Liquid Pearls in the centres of the flowers - so excited to finally have some of that stuff.  I embossed the tree and the sentiment and didn't spill a drop of embossing powder at all during the making of this card! Whoop whoop!  :)


I also wanted to say a big thank you to everyone for their sweet messages on yesterdays post.  You all sure know how to make a girl feel better.  :)

I don't know how you achieved such clean embossing, but it looks amazing and sure packs a punch!

So, I am also usually with embossing powder covering my entire workspace! This is so graphic and striking against the black. The tree stamp is so nicely done. Beautiful!

oh my gosh that is so pretty, totally reminds me of a cherry blossom in spring .. what's up with not dropping the embossing powder, it's things like that that make us less crafty people feel less pathetic!
