Play time!!!

So, I have spent this day doing a bunch of administrative stuff on my blog but I have managed to schedule in some play time with my NEW STUFF and now I'm here to show you the result! :)  I've used a retired but new to ME stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Upsy Daisy and the baby wipe reinker pad technique.

Here's the result~

Details~






For these fabulous challenges~



 

I made a baby wipe reinker pad using the two different colors of ink.  I chose to stamp onto natural white cardstock and then distress the edges with kraft ink so that the colors stood out more.  I stamped the flower silhouette image twice and then chose which sections to use on my card.  I adhered them with a darker yellow mat behind and then added the sentiment and some pearls.  I'm quite happy with how it turned out! :)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my creation.  I hope you come and play along with these fabulous challenges!  Happy stamping! :)
