Pink and Green Prettiness

This week's challenge on the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp blog was to use a pink and green color scheme. My digital image is from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. Isn't it pretty? I love all of the swirls! (BTW, Lindsay is having a design team call over on her blog, The Frugal Crafter. Go check it out!)


Here are some closeup shots of the "bling":



I used The Essential Glue Pad with some stamping glitter to make the pink accent paper. It was the first time I had used the glue pad and it was a lot of fun! (Now, if only I could figure out a way to use glitter without winding up making MYSELF sparkly, that would be great! lol)

Supplies: Flourished Chickadee (Lindsay's Stamp Stuff), Swirls and Curls (TAC), The Essential Glue Pad, pink stamping glitter, COPIC markers, tag, sentiment (retired TAC), Prima flower and brad. Card base is made from Ocean Tides cardstock from Papertrey Ink.

So pretty, love what you did with the bird! Does the glitter stap put with that glue pad? I got the palette and the Martha stewart one and the darn stuff flakes off when it is handled.
