simply stampin' challenge 68

Back for another challenge over at Simply Stampin' today! This week is a colour challenge, its a beaut! 

Rose Red, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede

Vintage Eleanor Birthday 

Stamp Set: Everything Eleanor, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Rose Red, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
DSP: First Edition
Accessories: Pearls, Champagne Shimmer Paint& Mist

So I used the stamping off technique to create a second shade of red/pink for my flowers - I love this technique - its especially great if you don't have so many coloured inks and need more shades/colours! I stamped the block frame in Crumb Cake onto the DSP followed by the flourish in Soft Suede. And finally the fancy looking frame in the champagne shimmer paint, this is actually stamped about 3 times but the second two I didn't add any soft suede to the mixture so it can't really be seen in this photo but in real life its sparkly and subtle and beautiful! I added the sentiment and flowers and then lots of pretty pearls before finally spritzing with champagne shimmer mist for even more added sparkle! 

I hope you will hop of over to the Simply Stampin' blog to see the other DT entries and then get on to creating your own! I can't wait to see them, and don't forget if you don't have te exact colours, no matter just use the closest ones you do own! 

Happy Stampin',
