Today, Papertrey Ink has their monthly Blog Hop Challenge and as always, a beautiful inspiration piece. I created a card using stamps from Beautiful Brushstrokes along with some ink blending and heat embossing.
To get the soft blended look for the flowers, I die cut the small and medium blooms from Beautiful Brushstrokes. Using the negatives, I blended Melon Berry and Berry Sorbet inks onto a rustic white cardstock panel.
I then stamped the petal detail onto the blended ink with Versamark and heat embossed it in white. I stamped a sentiment from Beautiful Brushstrokes Sentiments in Dark Indigo ink onto some vellum. I quickly sprinkled clear embossing powder over it and heated it for a nice glossy look. I love the soft, painted look you get. A little neater than watercolor :).
This is another version of the card I did where I trimmed out the flowers. I think I like the first version better with the softer look of the flowers.
