Summer Silhouettes Waterfall Card

I was really pleased with this card when I had completed it. I loved how the overall effect was so soft and lovely, very feminine.


The leaves were stamped off first onto scrap paper and the second and third impressions stamped onto the card pieces. I'm loving the new colour Smoky Slate, it stamps up looking almost silver.

Stamps - Summer Silhouettes, Creative Elements

Ink - Smoky Slate,  Pear Pizazz, Pool Party, Island Indigo

Card - Pear Pizazz, Pool Party, Whisper White

Embellishments - Pool Party seam binding ribbon, Large basic pearls

I hope you like it too!
