Embossed Daisy


Hi, I was asked by a friend to make a few feminine cards. I looked to a few challenges for inspiration.

At Inkspirational, there's a photo inspiration.


At Just Add Ink, the theme is to add a frame. I've used a Lil Inker impression plate that has a woodgrain frame on one side and this frame on the other. I've highlighted the embossing with distress inks.

At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge the theme is embossing. It's also an emboss it theme at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Materials used: Hero Arts Wildflower Garden stamp; Versafine ink & clear ep; Memory Box butterfly die; Lil Inker frame impression plate; distress ink; Prismacolor pencils; Flocking powder: sentiment sticker & bling from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
