I stamped the Mum (on Kraft CS) using pigment inks: Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke from Stampin' Up. Embossed with clear embossing powder. I used a Spellbinders die to cut and used it as a stencil to add the rose colored ink (Fired Brick from Ranger) in the beaded oval area. I added a little more color to the mum with some chalks. The rose CS is from Brazzill. I added some lace and ribbon. I made another one of my ribbon do-dads and added a pearl in the center. To see instructions for making do-dads go here. I distressed the edges with Very Vanilla pigment ink (SU). Here is a close up so you can see the beautiful detail in this stamp.
And another close to see the ribbon and do-dad.
I can't wait to see what you come up with. Link your project on the Stamping Vacation blog and you will be entered into the monthly drawing.
