Birthday Purses

I finally picked up some stamps from Gina K. These ones were designed by Rupa Shevde. I love her clean, detailed, graphic line designs. I've been wanting this set since it first came out, but I just kept putting it off.

I needed to design a birthday card for my mom's boss, I thought that these purses seemed perfect for her. I coloured them in with Copics, then cut them out, popped them over another stamped image, and added a bit of bling to the olive coloured purse. I was going to make the card in really bright tones, but it just didn't seem right. I'm glad I settled on earthy tones, it just seemed more appropriate for the recipient. To add that little extra something, I applied the Swiss Dot folder to some Kiwi cardstock then sprayed a shimmer spray.

And just so you can see the effect of the popped up purses, here's a close-up.
