Dare to be Fabulous


Recently Jennifer Mcguire posted a tutorial for this technique and I knew I had to give it a try myself. I used Peacock Feathers Distress ink to completely cover a piece of white cardstock, then misted my SU! Fabulous Flowers stamp (R) with water and stamped it twice to place a beautiful muted image on the ink. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark on black, and embossed it with white ep, then added an embossed panel on the bottom done with a SU! ef. The final touch was to dot the flowers with some matching blue ink.

I'm sharing this over at the Shopping our Stash SOS#225 challenge which is to go "paperless" - use no designer paper.

Here's wishing you a great day, and thanks for stopping by :)

I saw Jennifer doing that technique but haven't been brave enough to try it. Yours is gorgeous! Love the subtle look of the flower on here and that embossing at the bottom. Very, very pretty.

I love the gorgeous colour on this beautiful card. The technique you used looks fabulous, I must give it a try. I like the white embossed sentiment too, and embossed panel at the bottom gives a nice balanced look.

Very pretty background. I hadn't seen this technique but I'll have to give it a try. The dots on your embossed flowers match the Peacock Feather perfectly. Super nice card. Enjoy the evening.
