Tuesday facebook once again told me that I had missed a friend's birthday. I really need to make a calendar which alerts me to friends' birthdays a week before, so I can make a card... Yesterday I put this card in the mail, and hopefully she won't see this post until the card comes. This stamp is so much fun to color as long as I stamp it with pigment ink and emboss it with clear detail powder first. Otherwise the alcohol markers make the ink bleed. I chose the colors based on this week's Color My Heart Dare to use Pear, Lagoon and Buttercup and figured since I had my pigment inks and embossing heater out, I might as well emboss the sentiment as well. After coloring, I cut out the leaf and flower and used foam tape to pop up the flower. Thank you for stopping by! Now please go check out the Color My Heart Color Dare page to see other ways to use these colors.
