Simply Amazing

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!

I’m back with another card created inspired by a previous Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge inspiration photo. I can’t wait to start playing with these for real!!

Here is the inspiration photo I used:

And here is my take:

What do you think? I really love how this turned out!!

I started with an Avery Elle Pure White card base (I know, not PTI – shocker!! But this is a much better white, trust me!!). I stamped the flowers from Delightful Dahlia Additions using A:Muse inks in Lime and Pebble, using masking to get the right overlap etc. I added flowers from Wildflower Garden, stamped with Mama Elephant ink in Smoke.

Next I flipped the large flower stamp over and overstamped the flowers with Versamark ink, and used a Versamarker for the rest. I heat embossed the flowers using WOW! Clear Semi Dull embossing powder. Then I set to work with the inking! I used Mama Elephant ink in Winter and A:Muse ink in Bermuda, then sprayed with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine Mist in Seafoam. This ended up being took dark for my liking do I lightened the colour with some Distress Paint in Picket Fence.

I used an iron to remove the embossing powder, then stamped the sentiment from WPlus9’s Quite Like You using Smokey Shadow ink. Finally I overstamped the whole card using the Hero Arts Envelope Pattern stamp and Versamark ink and that was me done!

So I have an absolutely awesome post coming tomorrow – I really hope you’ll tune in to see it! In the meantime I would love it if you would leave some love before you head on your way. Thanks so much for stopping by!
