I love the way this card turned out. It's hard to tell in the photo but all the ferns are different colours. I embossed them with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Embossing Powders. They have a black base but as you move the card they turn a different colour. The left one is Lava Red, the middle one is Arctic Black and the right one is Lapis Black.
So, I started with the fern image which is from the Creative Expressions Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set. I stamped it using Perfect Medium and added one of the Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powders. I did this 3 times, using a different powder for each one. I cut them out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Eight and inked with Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
For the background, I randomly stamped the flower spray image from the Studio 490 Botanical Art stamp set using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. Then I randomly stamped the German script from the same stamp set using Black Soot. I did not mount the stamp on to a block but used it straight from my hand. I edged the background with Black Soot using Cut n Dry Foam.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Cobalt Archival. I did not emboss it. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags One inking through the die with Black Soot.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
