I have another floral card today - this time it's an Iris, inspired by our garden.
The Iris die is another Penny Black beauty. I diecut the flower, coloured it with Zig CCRB markers and when it was dry I swiped a versamark pad over it and clear embossed. I did this 3 times to get a thick layer.
I then stamped a Prima mini background stamp with versamark ink and embossed it with Pearl Embossing Powder.
Then I used some distress ink to colour over the stamped image - it's very difficult to make out in the photo, but it is a lovely subtle background for the flower. Next I stamped the sentiment from WPlus9 with distress ink and embossed with the pearl powder to get a soft colour.
To finish I added the twine bow and pearl coloured with copic marker.
I am entering this in the CAS Mix it Up Challenge - the theme is Heat Embossing.
I'm also entering the Simon Wednesday Challenge - Flowers and the Craft Stamper Take it, Make it Challenge - Anything Goes with stamping.
