Pink Mom Card

These pictures look so gloomy I may have to rephotograph them. The top part of the card is patterned paper Recollections that has a light pink design and then the bold black polka dots. The bottom of the card is a small background stamp by Inkadinkado that I stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder on white cardstock. Then I inked the area with Spun Sugar distress ink by Ranger using an ink blending tool. Then background is an odd size because it is too small for a card lengthwise and too big if you turn the stamp on quarter turn. (I'm trying so hard to explain myself and I don't think it's clear what I'm trying to say.) But anyway I had to cut the piece down to fit across the bottom and once I did that I placed a black cardstock strip of paper over the seam of the top and bottom pieces of paper. I used Lawn Fawn alphabet stamps for my sentiment along with Stampin Up white pigment ink.

The flowers and stems stamps and dies are by Stampin Up. I stamped the flowers with Clearsnap pigment ink and the stems with Hero Arts shadow ink. I layered and staggered two stems on top of each other to extend the length for the higher flower.

Lots of stamping in this card but that's what I love to do.

Thanks for looking.
