Happy Tuesday! My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Technique Lovers Challenge. Belleek Pottery was our inspiration and we were to create a colored pattern on cardstock by applying ink on to an embossing folder. You can find step by step instructions on how to perform this technique here.
I inked the front side of the embossing folder with Antique Linen using a brayer, inserted the cream cardstock, turned the folder front side down on my Big Shot and embossed.
I created a frame, sponged on ink and mounted with mounting tape on the embossed layer. I punched several little flowers, sponged ink on, distressed and glued four together for each flower. After applying ink I attached the leafy flourish to the frame and base of the card and attached the flowers. I sponged several rock fern foliage and arranged around the flowers to complete.
I love the elegance of this card. It really is so much prettier in person than in the photo.
I hope you are having a great week and appreciate you stopping by. I hope to have another pretty project for you tomorrow.
