Cherish pink

This month's challenge at Hero Arts is flowers! I haven't used this new wood Silhouette Meadow Flowers stamp much, so I decided to start with it. It is stamped in VersaMark and embossed in white over a pink polished stone backbground, and then the leaves were colored in using Peeled Paint Distress ink, which turned them a brownish green. I also used a pink marker to give a little more shading to the roses, then framed the panel in brown. To finish I added 2 little butterflies, highlighting their brown dots in white gel pen ala Kathy, and popping them above the panel. This was placed on a printed paper and the sentiment was heat embossed in white.

supplies: K5340 Silhouette Meadow Flowers, CG108 Special Moments, CL151 Share Laughter, white and brown cardstock, Heidi Grace printed paper, VersaMark, Memories Artprint Brown, and Peeled Paint distress inks, white embossing powder, pink marker, pop dots
