The first of every month is a digi release time for Whimsy Stamps and we are also setting a monthly challenge on Whimsy Inspirations Blog. Our theme for month of September is Perfect Pearls.
I loved the idea of Crissy Armstrongs new Daisy Butterfly with pearls in soft vintage style so that's how this card happened, lol:
I coloured the image with Prismacolour pencils, for some reason it's easier for me to achieve soft muted tones with those. I tend to go nuts with Copics and be fairly heavy-handed.
And then I went totally nuts with glitter and pearl swirls. The papers are from MME, I sponged all edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and Memento Desert Sand (for image, my inkjet printouts do NOT like distress inks). Then I dabbed all the edges with Tsukineko Glue Pad and and heat embossed with glittery embossing powder. The lace is from my stash.
The sentiment is from Whimsy Birthday Letter Seals, stamped on patterned paper.
