ABNH - Embossing

Flowers seems to be blooming all over here at the moment and we are planning to make our yearly cycling trip to see the bulbs if I am feeling better.

Inspired by all the flowers, I am choosing an old stamp set from HA which is stamped 3 times with distress inks, spritz in water and stamped onto a watercolour paper.   Immediately, I heat embossed them in clear as I like the look of the morning dews on the tulips.

I wanted a light pink to match my tulips and decided to use an ink pad and swiped it over a white cardstock to achieve the pink that I wanted. Then added a piece of vellum doily and did a double twine bow. The border punch is from spellbinders Border One and added some pearl accents.  This card also goes into the following challenges : Curtain CallThe Kraft JournalA Blog Named HeroStamping SensationsAAA Cards and CAS-ual Fridays.




Hope your weather is as beautiful as here and have a lovely day!

Gorgeous card and colour combo Lai-Yoke. Apols for the no show all week, taking longer to get over the op that I expected.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
