Oooh, I love this card! I wanted to try out my new Blends pens and thought the Remarkable You stamp set would be a good one to use because the flowers are quite large. I used both the light and dark Pumpkin Pie. I love orange and think this looks great.
I paired it with the Lemon Lime Twist DSP from the Fresh Florals DSP – the orange and green go well together don’t they.
I used Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp the image on Whisper White cardstock and gave it a minute or two to dry.
It doesn’t matter whether you use use dark pen or light pen first, you can still blend with them. It is easier though if the ink is still wet. It is normal to get some bleed through of the ink so remember to put something under your card.
Then I added gold accents. I’d always choose silver before gold, but this needed a warm gold to complement it.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Best Birds stamp set. I heat embossed it, and while I had the set out I remembered that there was a little bird in the framelits which could sit next to the sentiment. Et voilà finished!
I have another card using Remarkable You and Blends pens for my next post. Be sure to check in and take a look.
Here’s what I used to make this card:
