I stamped the image with Basic Gray ink which is now being reformulated because apparently it has issues?? I never had issues with my stamp pad but apparently some have.
To color the flowers, I used my Aquapainter and Soft Sky ink. A Blender Pen would work too - and actually might be easier because some of those flowers are tiny!
I have decidedly become more simplistic in my card making and I haven't done any paper piercing in a while. It was fun to pull out the Festive Paper Piercing templates and add some piercing on the Basic Gray layer of my card. Yes, you guessed it! It is retiring - as is the Occasions and Essentials Paper Piercing templates. Paper Piercing hasn't gone away though. Just sayin' :)The background layer was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and trimmed with a Finishing Touches Edge as seen up close in the photo above. Oh, I added some tiny pearls too for a little feminine touch to my card.
