Guest Designer contest

For My Favorite Things stamp company is today...until 10pm! So the challenge is to create a monochromatic card or object! I created a card...for now! I might make another project after the kids go to bed tonight...we'll see!

I used the stamp set doodle this and I really like how it turned out! It was a whole lot of work, but definately worth it! I wonder who the lucky recipient will be? To make this card I stamped the main image flowers onto water color paper with the stazon black ink pad, I then used my pretty in pink marker and "loaded" it up with purely pomegranate ink and colored in all 4 flowers. Next I cut them all out andinked them once again with versamark ink this time. Then coated them with clear embossing powder and heat set...boy did those colors POP!!! Once I had all the flowers assembled like I wanted them I used my piercing tool from the crafters tool kit and made a whole to be able to apply my build-a-brad. I stamped the swirl, used my 1/2 inch circle punch and got that cute little thing, inked it and placed it in the center and added the clear bauble.

Then I layers my card up! I used my Crop-a-dial to emboss the pretty in pink paper and sponged the edges, added ribbon and called it a day! What do you think?

Here is a close up of the card so you can see all the dimention, I know this card wont go in the mail...or maybe I'll just have to suck it up and pay the extra postage!
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stampin'
