Sweet Stamps Challenge 8 - Easter

Today is our eighth challenge on the Sweet Stamps blog.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.  Our challenge theme this week is ......

Easter


I stamped the Sweet Stamps Ruffled Umbrella, Three Wild Rose Garland and Easter Blessings with white dye ink onto 36# vellum, heat embossing them with Queen's Gold embossing powder.  I dry embossed the ruffle and the handle on the umbrella and the leaves on the flowers, then added some color with Memento markers.  I used my 4-Split tool to cut out the flowers then mounted them on the umbrella with Mini Glue Dots. The DP is from Doodlebug.  Finished size is 5.5 inches square.

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

Sandy, I love the soft colors you used and how you added the flowers in the umbrella. Do I detect a little "pink" on this card?
