You know when you see an image that you just HAVE to have? Yeah, this is one of those. I am a big fan of Magenta (while you can't shop from their website you can view some beautiful cards in their gallery) images and when I saw a sample they had on their site with this image I had to have it! I only used it once when I got it and then unfortunately, along with many of my wood mounted stamps, it got tucked away and forgotten about. I have so many that I really need to revisit.
I used this image to make a birthday card. It is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI Kraft paper and colored with Prisma's and OMS. I found this gorgeous magenta colored Prism paper that matched the equally gorgeous Eva paper from Basic Grey. I used a Nestie to cut the rectangle scallop and the tag which is stamped with a sentiment from MFT Icing on the Cake set. The flowers are from the Bridal dept in Michaels and I colored them with a Copic and added a button and thread. They are really a nice soft lime green. The colors are little funky here and no matter what I did I just couldn't get them right. The whole card is a bit softer irl. As a finishing touch I highlighted some areas with a Sakura Stardust pen which you can see in the first picture. I have to use this stamp more often!
