Growing Old Friends

It's Monday again and I had a seriously busy weekend! So busy in fact that I missed some deadlines so I'm doing my best to get back on track for this week!

A few days ago my new Reverse Confetti set, Love Blooms arrived in the mail but I hadn't touched it yet... I have a basket on my work table with all my new stamps and sets that I want to use but it's gotten fairly full of late so it's a bit slow going.

I did however get this set out and make my card for this week's CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #117 Sketch

I started with my staple white card base of Stamper's Select white cardstock and then added a layer of Recollections patterned paper for my strip down the side. I then stamped my images on another piece of white to mount on top.

Trying to match the colors in the paper gave me the opportunity to pull out some of my Memento dye inks that I really don't use that often so that was an extra bonus!

For the finishing touch and because I really like them, I added some liquid pearls in Flamingo... I'm trying to practice with the Liquid Pearls. You think it looks so easy until you try to make it look like the picture in your head!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great week!

Supplies Used:
Paper - Stamper's Select White (PTI), Recollections Patterned Paper
Stamps - Reverse Confetti Love Blooms
Inks - Versafine Black Onyx, New Sprout & Summer Sky (Memento); Hibiscus Burst (PTI)
Other - Flamingo Liquid Pearls (Ranger)
