So, I got out my Many Marvelous Markers and I came up with this:
I started with a base of Crumb Cake (sounds soooo much more appealing than Kraft) and then layered it with Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum. Then I colored the image of the Lavendar flowers with Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum markers, huffed the image (the only time it is legal and safe :) ) and then stamped it on a piece of Confetti Cream. Sometimes I stamped it twice before reinking and huffing so it gave different variations of color. Then I stamped the Birthday Wishes from Occasional Quotes and added it using dimensionals. The Perfect Plum ribbon was created by holding a sponge dauber on top of Whisper White 3/8-inch Taffeta Ribbon while I dragged it across my Perfect Plum Classic Ink pad. It is so easy to have every color of ribbon if you do this.
The complete list of supplies:
Stamp Set: Herb Expressions, Occassional Quotes
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Perfect Plum, Confetti Cream, Wild Wasabi
Ink: Perfect Plum
Accessories: Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum Markers, Whisper White 3/8-inch Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals
I know I said I am a "happy girl" when the stamp set includes both the image and the verse but unfortunately, it doesn't have just a quick specific quote - so I had to use two. The good thing about Occasional Quotes is that it is a Level 3 Hostess Set so you can earn it for FREE!!! And August is a great time to book a home workshop to earn that ($500 in sales) along with an additional $25 in FREE merchandise if your sales equals at least $350!! If you are in the San Diego area and would like to book a workshop, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you on my calendar. 'Til next time.....
