The Flower Challenge Reminder


We are half way through December and it's time for another card for The Flower Challenge.
This month our challenge is to use an older stamp, stencil or die.

 I am using my older stamp from Unity again today to create this anniversary card.
I began by creating the background using the Embossing Folder Inking Technique.  I rubbed Distress inks over the front part of my embossing folder, sprayed with water and pressed my paper onto the folder.  It is a great way to get more mileage from something you already have in your stash too!

I placed the flower stamp from Unity inside my Misti and stamped with black Memento ink then stamped the sentiment from Rubber Stampede and done.

Please come and play along with us!!

 Adding my card to these challenges:

That technique comes out so perfectly for you, Karen. Mine usually looks sloppy. It made a beautiful background for the silhouetted flowers.

Gorgeous card - I love the background, I have not used an embossing folder in this way - I must try it, thank you! xxx

Gorgeous! I love how it looks like tiny puddles inside those hexes! What a beautiful backdrop for your silhouette stamp! Love it and another technique I must try.

Bonnie said...

Your background is gorgeous, Karen! I've never come up with anything this beautiful using this technique! Need lots more practice I guess. The simple flowers and sentiment are so striking and make a very classy card!

Aileen said...

Beautiful, I knew you would do a brilliant job. Nice colour combo here to. Embossing folder and distress inks - another technique to try. Wow just had a thought, haven't even looked at my embossing folders for Christmas cards, so have to check them out.

Susan said...

Love your stamped embossing folder background! Great choice of colours. It makes the perfect background for a silhouette stamp.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

OoH! love that honeycombed background. I haven't done the inked embossing folder trick in a long time. This is just awesome in so many ways.
