I love creating and blogging. However, I thought it would be fun to offer a little change-up by featuring periodic Guest Stamper spots from some of my readers. Today marks my first "guest," my dear friend and paper artist: Colleen. She has been a supporter of my blog since it's "infancy" last November–always finding something special to say in a comment. I think of her daily remarks as my "morning cup of positive energy." Plus her card and envie are drop dead gorgeous!
Stamp set: Fabulous Flowers, Tr?s Chic Background
Paper: Stampin' Up! Watercolor Paper, Cameo Coral and Vellum, DCWV for Envelope
Ink: Tr?s Chic Background in white craft ink, Fabulous Flower in Blush Blossom on Watercolor paper. TIP: Colleen used an Aqua Painter to gently add a tiny dab of Pretty in Pink to the middle of each petal and a tiny dab of Cameo Coral to the ends of each Petal (WOW)! TIP: She deliberately did not blend the colors as she personally likes the graduated color effect (and I do, too).
Extras: Pearl Dew Drops, Stay Put Bow (link available on my right side bar), Clear Spica Pen to cast a sparkly finish to each petal. She's not sure where the ribbon is from.
Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots on Vellum makes a beautiful horizontal panel and Stylized Flowers adds shape to the envelope (which was created with a Scor-Pal).
Thanks, Colleen, for sharing your talent and tips with the Stampin' Pretty crowd!
