Creative Elements Birthday - Hand Stamped Sentiments #147

The challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments is to create something in hues of the same color i.e. monochromatic
 

For my monochromatic colors I chose to use various shades of pink: Pretty in Pink, Primrose Petals, and and Raspberry Ripple using the triple stamping technique.

The Pretty in Pink did not show up as well as I would have liked. In the picture you can see the swirls very faintly.  It looks better in real life.

After temporatily attaching all 3 layers together, the swirl stamp was inked with Pretty in Pink and stamped all over the background.  Before doing this the sentiment was stamped with Raspberry Ripple.

The flower was stamped with Raspberry Ripple, and the butterfly with Primrose Petals.

Stamps: Creative elements, Create a Cupcake
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple
Papers: Primrose Petals, Whisper White
Accessories: 1/4" Primrose Petals stitched satin ribbon, ribbon slide
