I Couldn't Have Picked - NBUS #1

...a better friend.

Hello and welcome.  I found a new blog the other day belonging to someone I follow on Pintrest, and she's holding a monthly challenge as well as challenging followers to use their virginal or Never Before Used Schtuff.  The first challenge is based on friendship and I figured these challenges would help me get my mojo back.  So I pulled out a set I bought years ago from the now closed Clear Dollar Stamps store and had never used along with some never used pearl dew drops to create this card.

I stamped the background using the tools from the Bless My Blooms set using regal rose ink directly onto the card before sponging the background.  The main image is stamped in memento black then colored using prismacolor markers then cut out the heart flowers and popped them up on dimensionals before layering, adding brads, a floral spray made from scraps and Martha Stewart punches, and then the virginal white pearl dew drops.  My final touch was to spritz regal rose ink over the main image for some extra texture.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

  1. Your pot of heart posies is so pretty framed and set on that red card base, Bonnie! I love that you popped up the hearts and all your added embellies!!
