This Special Day

Hello and Welcome
Playing with some Penny Black stamps and my much loved Distress inks.

I began by placing the Delicate Florals inside my Misti, inked with Versamark, stamped then clear heat embossed with my heat tool.  That created a resist that I could ink over the top of.
Using my foam inking tool, I began on the top right corner, rubbing Peacock Feathers Distress ink onto my white cardstock.  I continued next with Salty Ocean then Faded Jeans at the bottom trying to blend all the colours as I went along.  

I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Sentiment collection with Memento black ink then using some water, I splattered it over my card front to lift some of the colour and add interest.



Have a great weekend and thanks so much for the visit.

Stamps- Delicate Florals, Treasured Sentiments (PB)
Ink- Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans Distress (TH); Versamark

A beautiful combination of blue tones Karen, and I love the darker edge which makes it stand out against the white background. That PB stamp is so pretty and detailed, with the clear embossing and another great sentiment. x

All my favourite shades of Distress blue! Love the subtlety of the flowers being embossed in clear instead of white.
