For my creation, I enjoyed playing off the design of the patterned paper by Susan W. The design is full of color and "bubbles" which was a perfect match for my Stephanie Barnard Gum4Backgrounds stamp.
I began with a design in mind- I wanted to create some playful flowers in the background. To get this look I took my Pigment: ColorBox® Petal Point® in Mint Canary, Pink and Peony and began to press down firmly beginning with Peony, then Carnary, and finally accenting with Pink creating a petal design.
I took my Gum4Backgrounds stamp stamped in Mint then again with Pigment: Mix'd Media Inx™ Inkpad in Black over top. I was wanting to build some dimension with my stamping so I went in with Stephanie Barnard's Dictionary4me Stamp with my Mix'd Media Inx in Black. y
I have also added some glitter with Glue Gloss and Fairy Dust Glitter by Donna Salazar in Pralines and Cream.
