I saw the colors for this month’s Essentials by Ellen August 2017 Pin Sights Challenge, and had to participate.
Here is the inspiration board:
I stamped my florals in Distress Inks, so the coverage is not solid – this was an intentional choice.
After the ink dried (I let it sit overnight – just because I could), I added the detail items to the flowers/leaves with 3 different color detail embossing powders.
Then, I die cut the word out of the floral background, and out of yellow card stock. I ultimately decided one extra layer was not enough, and cut another “Hello” out of tangerine card stock.
Here is a side view of the layers:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
