Welcome Back, 

So this week I decided to step out of the comfort zone. I have said, in past blog posts. I am not confident when it comes to watercolour painting. But I have been much more confident, when using Distress Inks as my palette. I love flowers but always steer away from them as I don't think I will be able to make it look nice. But I decided to give it a shot, so I leave you to decide if I managed to pull it off!

Stamp your image in Obsidian Ink.

Using the ink cubes line up your palette colours. 

I use the Waffle flower  Mat.

I wet the flower with a clean water brush then drop in colour.

I don't have the coordinating die, so I fussy cut the flower out. Then went around it with a black pen.

Next I ran the embossing file through my die cutting machine with 110lb Neenah card stock as this is a thicker weight of card stock o gives a nice deep impression. I attached this to my 6" squared card blank.

Before attaching my flower image to the card. I used an embossing tool to rub over the back to create dimension to the large flowers then support them with two layers of  mounting tape.
The next stage was stamping and embossing my sentiment with white embossing powder on to black card stock.
Then varnishing the whole image by, brushing over it with Crystal Glaze. Popped a small heap of flower soft in the centre of the flower. Lastly I added some  Colourer matching Enamel Dots.
Thanks for Stopping By, Happy Paper Crafting
