Things With Wings

This card was created a couple of months ago and was inspired by a card creation in Stampin' Success....a fabulous, full-color magazine available only to demonstrators..  This publication is a wonderful resource  full of lots of terrific artwork, business tips, and product ideas....another GREAT reason to become a demonstrator!!  (How do you think we came up with all our ideas?!!)

Anyway, this is based on a card in the magazine a few months back, but I've changed it up a a bit.  This sample was created for a Bloggers' Challenge a couple of months ago (for the Things With Wings Challenge), but  I just hadn't had the chance to share it with all of you before now!

As you can see, the one stamp was used repeatedly across the base of the Whisper White square.  Ink once, stamp twice....that's how the "shaded" look was created.....such an easy technique.  Although I used Wild Wasabi Ink, the lighter color seemed to resemble Pear Pizzazz, so that's the color of the green background. 

As you can see, I'm a fan of pinks and greens together, AND polka dots....that dotted ribbon is now retired, but seemed to go so well with the impressed background, which seemed to go with the stamped images!  Isn' it fun?!!  Here's the info:

Stamps:  Pocket Silhouettes, Short & Sweet
Inks:  Wild Wasabi
CS:  Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette
Big Shot:  Dotted Embossing Folder (Non-SU), Beautiful Wings Embosslits
