    My Stash

    Detailed White Embossing Powder

    Black Organza  Ribbon 1/4 "

    2 x  6" x 6" Card Blanks


    Firstly I stamped the line art in Obsidian Pigment Ink.

    I turned my cardstock and stamped again.

    I then lined up the coordinating stamp to the line image. Using Pink Pearl and Coral Bliss I stamped the shading.
    I then used the coordinating dies to die cut the images.
    I then chose the leaf images with the stem and stamped them in the same ink.
    I then used Minty Mint, and Sweet Leaf ink cubes.

    I repeated this to make up a few leaves and stems. I then die cut them and arranged them on to my 51/2 x 5 1/2 " piece of card.
    I finished going around the edges with a blending brush with  Minty Mint.
      I stamped out all the ink colours from the ink pads to create a water colour palette.
    Using the water colours and the ink spay, I splattered the design.
    I stamped and embossed my sentiments on to black card stock, in white embossing powder. this was then mounted on to a 6 x 6 " card blank.

    Card Two & Tag
    I cut a piece of  Neenah cardstock to 51/2" x 51/2" , also a die cut tag. and ran it though my bigshot with the 3d embossing folder.

    Both were gently blended with the minty mint ink cube.

    I then used the left over flowers and foliage to finish them. I cut off the excess.
    These were all finished with enamel dots and embossing in white embossing powder on black card stock.

    I  have loved making these projects, they are so elegant looking. I just love the colours I have chosen. 
    Please let me know in the comments what you think.
