Another Pink Flower Card
The main panel was embossed with an EF that I don't know the name of, I think it was one that is sold by Do Crafts. The magnolia is a clear stamp from Chocolate Baroque, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured with Promarkers. I wasn't totally happy with how it looked and decided to colour the narrow scalloped line in the embossing with one of the pink pens I'd used on the flower. Promarkers are brilliant for this kind of work, I could never have coloured that thin line with a pencil.Then I thought it would look better with a coloured background so I filled it in with the palest blue Promarker that I've got. Next I trimmed the piece close to the embossing and inked the edge with the pink pen. I rummaged around and found these two dragonfly brads which matched, that have been in my stash for ages. The greeting is another CB clear stamp from a set of greetings and sentiments called Amazing Birthday. It is stamped onto a very small snippet of card with the black Memento ink and coloured and edged to match the image panel.
As I have used that little snippet of card I am off to Pixies Snippets Playground to join in the fun there.
