The old bloggo has been rather quiet lately! Babysitting for grands consumed four long days last week so there was very little creativity happening on my end. I hit my craft room yesterday and needed to replenish my birthday card supply so went with the new pansy dies that were part of the December release at Papertrey Ink.
I like to cut out all the flowers/stems/leaves from white cardstock and then add color by blending with brushes and dye ink. The oval is a new to me die from PTI and I love its size. I layered it over the new Cover Plate: Elegance die which adds some texture. I also highlighted the florals using Prismacolor pencils. I decided to embellish with the Pure Poppy baker's twine which has a hint of shine in it.
STAMPS: Perfect Pairs Commodities (Papertrey Ink).
PAPER: White, Sweet Blush, True Black (Papertrey Ink).
