(Pink, Green, Cream or White)


Since the colors were pink and green this time I HAD to use my American Beauties (JFF H2247) stamp. :)

To start, I stamped my image twice onto cream paper using (Memento) Tuxedo Black. Next, I used my new Twinkling H20's (LA)*color list at bottom of post. I'm still getting the hang of painting with the H20's but I think it turned out well for my first time using them. I colored some of the leaves and the roses twice, so I could cut them out, and use pop-up dots behind them to add dimension to my card. All leaves were highlighted with Green Apple smooch (CS). Once the image was colored and dried I used Labels 8 (Spellbinders S5019) to cut it out. All edges were chalked with olive pastel (CB)----I used a new color. Can you believe it? :)
All paper, ribbon and eyelets used for this card are scraps from my stash. I'm recycling too! The green striped paper I used my Flourish Impressabilities on (I2-1009). It doesn't show up well in the photo though. For my finishing touches I added "Love" from the With Love... (JFF WB8009) stamp, using (CTMH) Olive ink pad. I used my (SU) Pretties kit to make the hat pin and used the half pearls as embellishments.

*H2O's: Blushing Rose, Pink Azalea, Moss Green, Lemongrass & Key Lime


  1. Wow! I love that you used H20's to color! Very nice job. I also like the stick pen! Lots of dimension with the different layers!

  2. Very elegant, would make a great Anniversary card.

  3. Wow, Rita. What beautiful depth you got with the coloring of the flowers. Just gorgeous!!!

  4. Oh you can see the glimmer from the Twinks! I have this stamp and have never put ink to it . . . it's BEAUTIFUL!

  5. OOOOO!! I love roses and these are just gorgeous!
