You know those stamp sets that you absolutely love and use over and over and over…and then a new mini or a new catalog comes out and you kind of neglect your former favorites? It's sad…Lovely as a Tree, Just Buzzin' By, Upsy Daisy…and Elements of Style are some of those for me.
The color challenge on splitcoaststampers this week was Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake, so I thought that would look great as a vintage card with Elements of Style.
This was a pretty quick card. I stamped the roses in Jet Black StazOn, then colored with Blushing Bride, Old Olive and More Mustard markers. I added a little Moonlight smooch paint to some of the blooms and the bird's wings, and a little pearl for his eye.
Other things I've been neglecting – punches! So I dug out my Pinking Hearts border and corner punches.
Except for the excess smooch on the top rose, I like it! It kind of looks like someone was sipping Moonshine in the Moonlight while she was making the card, huh?
