I decided to create another card using my retired stamp sets and this card was designed using the floral image from Best of SAB along with a verse sentiment from the current stamp set, Words of Encouragement from Stamp Simply.
I wanted to participate with several online challenges and will be linking to the Inspire.Create.Challenges #50 Sketch Challenge, the Word Art Wednesday #402-#403“Anything Goes” Challenge and the TGIF Challenge #227 “Embossing” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the challenge sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- gorgeous galleries and inspiration from all!
I heat embossed the floral image as well as the sentiment onto white cardstock, die cut the sentiment panel and lightly stenciled tumbled glass oxide ink onto the panel.
I used water-based markers to watercolor the floral image and added shimmer with a glitter pen along with white highlights using an extra fine white paint pen. The image was trimmed and mounted onto black cardstock and the card was finished with a strip of designer paper.
