SPCC #31

Time for another SPCC challenge. This card features the new stamp set My Matryoshka. You can find it in the new Occasions Mini Catalogue. This combo seems so bright and reminds me of springtime so I knew that flowers were somthing I wanted to feature on the card. But there is no green in this combo so I snuck a bit of Mellow Moss in on the leaves. The technique I used was dipping an Aquapainter in ink and 'watercolouring' the ink on the paper. I also didn't have Apricot Appeal ribbon so I used a piece of Very Vanilla ribbon and dragged it over the Apricot Appeal stamp pad.
The Fun Stuff:
1. Stamps: My Matryoshka
2. Ink: Real Red, Apricot Appeal, Pretty In Pink, Black Staz On, Mellow Moss
3. Paper: Apricot Appeal DSP, Real Red, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink cardstock.
4. Accessories: 1/4" very vanilla grosgrain ribbon, 3/4" circle punch, stampin' dimensionals
