If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Wild Wasabi Happiness

Isn't that a cool name for a color? Wild wasabi! This card is for this week's color challenge on Splitcoast...wild wasabi, taken with teal, and white. This huge stamp is difficult to stamp with dye inks. I'm just never quite satisfied. So I use pigment inks. They're thicker and coat better. This time I went on to emboss it with white. I have a flower punch the exact same size as the top row of flowers, so I added them with white pearlized brads. The centers of the flowers in the middle row are colored with a gel pen and a dot of crystal Stickles was added. For the bottom row of flowers, i just colored in the petals with the teal SU marker.

recipe: stamps (Happiness by Stampin'Up), paper (wild wasabi, taken with teal, white), ink (white pigment), accessories (brads from All Sorts of Things, gel pen, flower punch from EK Success, teal SU marker, Offray ribbon)
