Hello and Happy Monday!
Today's card was inspired by a tag that Laura Bassen made on Day 6 of Stretch Your Stamps 2 using outline stamps.
To make sure that the ink of my stamped flower would not smudge when making the Distress Ink background, I first inked the flower with Versamark and then with Hero Arts Navy ink before I stamped and clear embossed it.
This worked perfectly, as I would not have been able to heat emboss the Hero Arts ink by itself.
For the background I used Milled Lavender and Bundled Sage Distress Ink. I also sprayed some of this fantastic mist for a lovely shine. The shine doesn't show up very well in the pictures, but it is lovely in real life.
To finish off the card, I added a navy blue mat around the stamped panel.
The color scheme was inspired by Color Throwdown #306 (CTD306). I think these colors look really pretty together, and it's a combination that I would not have thought of myself.
Thank you so much for visiting! :-)
