Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations has been given to us by Gwen. Along with the sketch, we had to use the colour of Perfect Plum. I must admit I haven’t used this colour for quiet some time, but alway love the end result when I do.

Stamp Set – Artistic Etchings, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink – Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette
Cardstock – Perfect Plum, Rose Red, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette
Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots
Accessories – Big Shot, Scallop Circle Punch, 1″ Circle Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Snail Adhesive
I run my large piece of Whisper White Cardstock through the Big Shot using Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered this to the Base Card – Perfect Plum with Snail Adhesive.
I inked my image in Pink Pirouette Ink, stamped off once & then onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I repeated this twice before stamping my main image over the top with Perfect Plum Ink. This piece was adhered to a piece of Pink Pirouette prior to adhering to the Base Card with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
The middle section was stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock with Pink Pirouette Ink. I stamped off once prior to stamping one image, while the other was direct to paper. I then inked the crown with Perfect Plum, stamped direct to paper while the 3rd image I used Rose Red. This piece was adhered to a layer of Rose Red Cardstock & finally to the Base Card. Part of the section was adhered with Snail Adhesive while the other part was adhered with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The greeting was stamped twice onto a scap of Whisper White Cardstock, once in Perfect Plum Ink, punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch & the 2nd image in Rose Red & the middle punched with the 1″ Circle Punch. The Rose Red image was then adhered to the middle of the Perfect Plum image with a Stampin’ Dimensional prior to adhering to the card. Again, I used Snail Adhesive for the top part, while the bottom part is supported by a Stampin’ Dimensional.
