Beautiful Trim

Here’s another idea for the Flower Trim.  I saw this technique and layout on Lydia’s blog and thought I’d give it a try.

Take a piece of Flower Trim and use sponge daubers to color the flowers.  I wanted to do it in pinks so I used Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Melon Mambo. You want the colors to blend into each other so overlap the colors a bit as you move up the trim.  Since this is a baby card, I wanted the colors to blend softly so I …….you guessed it….spritzed it with shimmer mist!  I used an alcohol and Shimmer Frost mix and spritzed it until the colors blended all the way through. 

Stamp Set – One in a Milion
card stock – Whisper White, Pink pirouette
Ink – Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo
Etc – Flower Trim, Designer Label punch, Delicate Lace tape

So soft and pretty!  Thanks, Lydia, for a great idea.  Hugs, Fran
