Pinks & Pearls Bottled Happiness for #AYSI293

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's Bottled Happiness Stamp Set is enhanced with Pinks & Pearls inspired by the As You See It Challenge #293.  Please click the hyperlink or the image below to visit the blog challenge and enjoy the inspiration.


***  The Trix  ***

*  Layer up the colours - experiment with various shades of pink for this two step stamp set.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, (stamped off once) with a Polished Pink bottle.  *Trix, distress the edges of the 3 1/2" x 3" piece of Basic White to repeat the distressing on the Petal Pink layer.

*  Repeat the colours - Emboss a 3" x 3" piece of Flirty Flamingo, and a 3 1/2" x 3" piece of Melon Mambo with the stripes from the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folders, #157980

*  Offset the layers to create a focal point - the card base is Petal Pink, with an extra 4" x 5 1/4" distressed layer of Petal Pink.  Play around and create the overlap of layers that's visually appealing.  *Trix, keep the stripes going in the same direction to match the vertical pattern on the bottle.

*  Add the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set, #158763 with Polished Pink ink on a scrap of Basic White cardstock and enhance the bouquet of blossoms with Pearl Basic Jewels, #144219.
