Spring Bouquet Thank You Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     I'm back again with another Thank You card, this time featuring the Spring Bouquet stamp from Red Rubber Designs!

     And it was a happy coincidence that my color palette just so happened to match this month's Color Challenge @ Lindy's Stamp Gang!

     The colors are so light and soft, so it's kinda hard to tell, but I used four LSG sprays on the cream background (Cotton Candy Pink, Tiffany's Blue, Violaceous Violet, and Treasure Island Aqua). Then I used a paintbrush with the same color sprays for the background of my stamped image, using Sidewalk Chalk to color the vase. The flowers and wood grain were then colored with Distress Inks.  For the sentiment, I used the Savvy Sayings stamp, embossed with LSG Purely White Embossing Powder. The doily was sprayed with Cotton Candy Pink, and the edges were colored with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

     Then I punched and layered three of my papers for the Layer it Up Challenge @ Frilly and Funkie, adding even more layers with my stamped image and doily, which I stitched through with my sewing machine, along with the edges of the wood grain paper. To finish it off I added some dots of Liquid Pearls (Petal Pink) along the punching, and some fiber tied in a bow.

       Thanks for looking, and enjoy your weekend!
