because I love the beautiful varigated colors! I used the same colors, but a slightly different technique for the Bella Toile background and a different main image and greeting. I also used punched out hearts in the corners rather than the die cut pieces. My accents are pearls rather than gold.
The Bella Toile background was stamped in white craft ink and embossed with pearl powder. Then I sponged Ballet blue and Lovely Lilac inks onto the cardstock. The edge was punched with a MS punch and layered onto another piece of white cs that I had sponged using makeup sponges which are more dense than the stamping sponges so delivered more instense color. I covered the corners with punched hearts that I accented with White Shimmer Paint. The main image was stamped in Basic Gray ink and watercolored with ink pads. I accented the flowers with White Shimmer Paint and then added small half pearls to some of the flowers and the hearts. The ribbon was white satin that I sponged with Blue and Lilac ink.
