Cherish Each Day

For this week's color and sketch challenges at Splitcoaststampers this week, I chose the Baroque Motifs set from Stampin' Up!  The colors are a wonderful collection of red and pinks that will soon be retired:  Ruby Red, Blush Blossom, and Cameo Coral.

Project Notes:
  • The flourish is stamped in Blush Blossom craft ink and then embossed.  I used Stampin' Pastels to add a little Ruby Red and Cameo Coral working from the darkest in the center out to the lighter shade.
  • I'm not sure about this punched border.  I was playing with an old Papershapers punch.  The white on red was too stark so I added more pastels to soften the look a little.
  • Build-a-brads really make the simpliest stamped image classy.

Thanks for dropping by!
