Pretty in Pink

Today's card features the Stampin' Up set, Choose Happiness in light pink and green. I love how soft and feminine it turned out.
I stamped the flower twice (on watercolor paper) and lightly painted over the petals with watered down distress oxide (worn lipstick). I then fussy cut both flowers (one smaller than the other) and layered them together for more dimension. The leaves were stamped (and watercolored) in peeled paint distress oxide. Spatters of both inks adorn the white watercolor paper base.
Supplies and Tools:
Choose Happiness (Stampin' Up), Sunny Flowers (Stampendous), Bible Journaling Stamps Set (American Crafts), Distress Oxides (Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint), Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, Watercolor Paper, Burlap String, Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch (Embroidery), Pearls, Nuvo Jewl Drops (Grey Mist), Sharpie Marker, Small Paintbrush, kraft cardstock
