A Note for You...

I created this card with a couple of new sets called Card Word Puzzle, and Just for You.  I also used a current set from a previous Idea Book called Simple Memories.

I first stamped the floral images in Twilight ink onto the front of the White Daisy cardstock base.

I used a piece of B&T paper from the new Florentine paper pack, and I stamped the flower image onto the left side with Versamark ink.

Then I sprinkled White Daisy embossing powder over top, tapped off the excess, and heat set it.

I then took my waterbrush and Outdoor Denim ink and coloured in the shading on and around the flower to make it pop and give it depth.

The lacey image I stamped onto Grey Wool cardstock is from Simple Memories.  I stamped it with White Daisy pigment ink, then because it takes too long to wait for pigment ink to dry, I simply embossed it with Clear Detail embossing powder.

 I stamped the sentiment in Black ink.

To keep it simple, all I added for embellishments are 3 little Bitty Opaques.

Happy creating  :)
