Pink Spots


I promised myself this year that I would use my rubber stamps.  I have hundreds of them, many not even taken out of their packing!  So to start off I have coloured this Penny Black image with Promarkers and decorated using all Marianne dies.  The image is decoupaged and I used glossy accents on the balloons to give them a shiny effect.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
"Love is in the Air" at Penny Black and More Challenge
"Pretty in Pink" at Marianne Design Divas Challenge
"Spots and Dots" at Di's Digi Designs Challenge


  1. Such a gorgeous card Michelle, Ideal for Valentines day. The flowers and die cuts are beautiful too. I also have loads of Stamps that have never seen ink, but at the time I just had to have them. Thank you for your kind comments you left earlier. It was really strange spending Christmas in the sun, and in Orlando they don't really do Christmas (the shops were open Christmas Day). Although it's nice being home I would far rather be back in the Sun again, I don't think much of all this wet weather we're getting.
