Congratulations coffeestamper on being this week's featured stamper! I have always loved your gallery. I chose this card to CASE http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1938186 because it inspired me to pull out the little girl stamp and finally use it! I changed the layout, colors and embellishments.
On the card base, I used the Very Vintage wheel in Baja Breeze ink, so it doesn't show up a lot in the photo. Then I stamped the flowering branch image from the Easter Blossoms set on 2x5.5" sheet in soft suede and then sponged on some soft suede ink. To add a little color, I scribled over the blossoms with a pretty in pink marker, quickly and messily, no need to stay inside the lines.
I made the framed tulip embossing folder smaller using a technique you can see here on my blog http://mnfroggie.blogspot.com/2011/0...torial-on.html . I heat embossed the girl with white EP, then sponged around the image and over the embossed tulip edge heavily with crumb cake ink to give it some depth. I also sponged a little soft suede ink around the edge. Added a brad with ribbon tucked in it and adhered. For the sentiment, I stamped in soft suede on whisper white and then sponged on more soft suede ink.
Then my favorite part of this card... the faux flower soft! I saw this somewhere and for the life of me I can't rembemer where! (middle aged brain) Sorry, I would love to give the credit to whoever came up with this idea. I made the faux flower soft by distressing a piece of pink pirouette paper until I had accumulated a little pile of pink paper fuzz. I put tombow multi glue on the basket image and added the fuzz to give a basket of flowers.
