Exciting News

I have some very exciting news to share today...


I love inspiration photo challenges, so I think this design team
will be an excellent fit for me!

I thought I'd share the card that I made for the 


Isn't that bouquet beautiful?
I was inspired to create my own bouquet on my card.


I used my Mama Elephant Sketched Flowers stamp set to create my card.
I stamped the flowers in versamark and heat embossed them in white.
Instead of masking my flowers, I just brushed off the extra embossing powder
before heating it each time.
I coloured them in with a paintbrush, water and ink pressed onto my acrylic block.


I stamped the sentiment (from PTI's Spring Woods) in versa fine onyx black onto a piece 
of vellum that I diecut using the banner die from Reverse Confetti's Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts
and heat embossed it in clear.

Thanks for looking!
