Make it Monday #60 : Generational Stamping

hiya!
i'm here today to share a birthday card i created for this week's papertrey ink make it monday challenge.  the technique this week is generational stamping, which basically means that you stamp your image multiple times without re-inking...this creates a lighter variant of your ink color and produces a soft effect with all of the different tones. i used papertrey's "pretty peonies" anniversary stamp set which i absolutely love love love. the images & especially the sentiments are just gorgeous.  my ink colors were sweet blush, aqua mist, new leaf and summer sunrise, all from pti as well, plus smokey shadow for the smaller sentiment. i added some glitter to the full color flowers with my spica glitter pen...looks much  prettier in person...i need to invest in a light box so i can take better pictures :)

thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
