Pink and Orange 'Possum

Honestly, I had some point with this card when I made it two weeks ago, but I'll be et fer a 'possum if I can remember what it was.

It's pretty, though, no?



I suspect this may have been inspired by something I saw in a magazine, but the orange and pink color scheme always makes me think of Dawn McVey. So this one's for Dawn.

How-To Tips: The silhouette stem stamp was inked first with the pear tart ink pad, then tapped with the bamboo Memento marker. Then, the whole thing was spritzed with a few squirts of water and stamped. I held the stamp in place for a few seconds. Repeat with the flower stamp, tangelo pad, and hot pink marker.

No opossums were injured in the creation of this post.

Neither was I.

Supplies
stamps: Papertrey Botanical Silhouettes
ink: Memento
paper: Passion Pink (SU), white (PTI)
accessories: dimensionals, markers, rhinestones
