Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Spring is approaching, not fast enough for me. Although I do appreciate the rise and set of the sun, the hugs and time spent with my children and husband. Changing seasons always bring me a new appreciation of the spent days of winter with the focus toward a new season. One spring mainstay for me are pink blooms. Birthday Blossoms stamp set has a beautifully drawn flower and cluster of blooms that can be colored pink to match the memories I have of dogwood and cherry trees back home in Texas.

Birthday Blossoms stamp set
Floral stamps can be incredibly versatile. When a color theme is in mind, Birthday Blossoms can carry it out. I really enjoy the hand drawn lines that work beautifully with watercolor or markers.
Today’s project was an opportunity to try out a new way to paint the blooms. Working on one of my clear acrylic blocks, I dripped one drop of a White Craft ink refill. Then adding one drop from the ink refill of Sweet Sugarplum, directly into the white ink, it mixed and moved and swirled. Using this mixture to fill in the flowers was a great experiment and worked out well. After all of the images were colored and dry, I applied a few drops of the Fine Tip Glue Pen and sprinkled loose glitter to give it a nice sparkle.
