Hello


Happy Tuesday!

I've been taking an online card class about embossing, so I thought I would try this technique.  First I stamped the background and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I went over the whole piece, blending with three shades of Distress ink.  The ink resists the embossing powder which is super cool.

I built my floral focal point using some die cut flowers I had cut the night before.  Now I want to color EVERYTHING in these soft hues!!  But I will try to restrain myself!

Have a lovely day and I'll see you again tomorrow.

I love the beautiful background you created with your card - those colors blend beautifully and are so soft with the white embossing. I also adore the way your choice of black ink/embossing sets off your focal image florals. Gorgeous card - glad I got to see it in the OCC gallery! Thanks for sharing it!

What a gorgeous card! You did a fantastic job stamping the background. May I ask what is the company/name of the floral stamp set you used to create the background?
