Blooming With Kindness for DD15

Greetings, Stampers! Today's card was created for a challenge and features three stamp sets. I used the Blooming With Kindness Stamp Set for the focal image, the En Francais Background Stamp for the background, and the Tiny Tags Stamp Set for (obviously) the tiny tag!

This week it's soft, romantic colors over at the Dynamic Duos challenge. They selected two of my favorite colors together, pinks and greens. I think the combination is so fresh and happy.

I tried a technique that I have seen done by several other demonstrators, so I'm not sure who to give credit to. Anyway, I wanted to give it a try and I was pleased at the results and how easy it was. I used Whisper White Card Stock and stamped the image in Versamark Ink. I heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. Then, I sponged with Pretty in Pink Ink and a Sponge Dauber, using more ink in the center of the image. So pretty and so easy!
