Good Morning friends. I this week is treating you well! I have a card that was a bit outside my comfort zone to share today! I was inspired by Virginia's View Challenge...and decided to "watercolor" a bit! Oh, how scary for me!!
I first used versamark ink and inked up a floral Heidi Swapp stencil. Then I used HA white embossing powder and embossed the stencil image. I pulled out my distress inks...those are SO fun! I'm all new to distress ink and I have to tell you how much I adore it!! So, after a bit of distress ink, I decided it needed a little bit of shimmer...you can't see from the photo(and I couldn't get a good photo of it to save my life!) but I used Heidi Swapp gold color mist over the top of the embossing and distress ink, so there is a fantastic gold shimmer to the background that is lovely IRL!
I used the current Cardabilities sketch, #94 for my layout. I used my notched flower and turning a new leaf die for the flowers and leaves. My sentiment in lovely Delicata Golden Glitz ink is from one of the heart to heart stamp sets, also from PTI.
I am glad I am being brave...trying new things and stretching my comfort zone! Here's to more challenges and stretching ourselves!! Take care, see you tomorrow and thanks for stopping by!!
