Springtime Pin-Sights

There's a new Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge, and it's full of spring colours and blossoms. 

Lots of pastel pinks and purples, floral images... here's where it took me:

The Bold Blossom die cuts are thoroughly coated in sparkle shimmer mist, which of course doesn't want to show in the photo. I sponged pink, lilac and green inks in the spots where I wanted the blooms. The sentiment is stamped in grey and embossed with sparkly embossing powder to go with the flowers. I'm thinking this will be either a wedding card (there's one we're going to next month) or perhaps a Mother's Day card. 
I'm also adding this to the Happy Little Stampers April Anything Goes with Dies challenge. 

Supplies: Neenah solar white & Stampin' Up almost amethyst cardstock, Essentials by Ellen All Inside stamp, Versafine smoky grey & spun sugar, shaded lilac & bundled sage distress inks, Hero Arts csparkle clear embossing powder, Spectrum Noir clear overlay sparkle marker, Tsukineko sheer sparkle spritz

Pin It Now!
