Hi there everyone! Today I’ve got a fun card to share that started with a white piece of cardstock. Most of my cards always start out white and then I add the color! I find that so much fun to do! To start, I stamped the images from the Sending Peonies stamp set with Versamark ink and then sprinkled on some white embossing powder (by Brutus Monroe, primarily the only embossing powders I use now) and heat set. I combined Black Soot and Hickory Smoke distress ink over the top to create that background. The white heat embossed images will resist the ink I lay down on top of it!
To finish off the card, I watercolored in some perfect pearls over some of the petals and added a strip of glitter tape to the card base. What I especially like about this glitter tape is the width (6mm) and they already have the adhesive on the back! 🙂 They do have other widths available in the shop. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set. She has quite a few sentiments on this set so you can built your custom sentiment.
I’m wrapping up my house hunting trip today and we fly back home! We had a successful trip and purchased a home and even had time to have the inspection done. Now its just the tireless process of closing, which is very different up here than it is in Florida. Much simpler in Florida. Driving back into NYC today to drop off the rental, which is ironically NEAR where the owner of The Ton lives, lol!!!!! Won’t see her this trip but will have plenty of time to see where once I move up here!
Have a great weekend!
