Flowers for a Friend

Morning.
Meet today's card.  I made it using one of my all time favourite flower stamps by Magenta.
I feel inspired when I pick it up to stamp with.  
I'm sure you have some of those favs in your collection too!

I began by placing the flower stamp called Clover Silhouette from Magenta into my MISTI.
I inked with blue Zig markers, sprayed with water then stamped.  After stamping with the blue, I inked with grey Memento ink, stamped off to remove some of the ink and then onto my paper to create a shadow effect.

I stamped the sentiment from Impression Obsession with Versamark and white heat embossed.  
Lastly, I rubbed Salty Ocean Distress ink over my card front to help reveal my sentiment.




Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES

Stampavie and More- EMBOSSING

Thanks so very much for coming to take a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Magenta, IO/ ink- Versamark, Distress, Memento/ inking tool/ white eb powder/ MISTI/ Zig markers

  18. Karen, I love that you've used the flower images for this card. The soft blues and greens blend together so seamlessly and beautifully. This is a card which is perfect for a man but could also just as easily be given to a woman. It's always a bonus when it works out like that. Great choice of sentiment, too. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
