Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Scribble Flowers

Greetings everyone and happy Friday! Today we start the August release celebration for Sweet 'n Sassy stamps! Today's new stamp set is a beauty...a large flower set that contains a boatload of images! 

When I first saw these stamps I knew I wanted to create a page full of flowers, and I combined that idea with a new technique I saw posted by Jennifer McQuire (you can see her video here). 

I created my floral panel by stamping some of the images in VersaMark ink, on white cardstock, and then I embossed them with white embossing powder. Once the powder had cooled, I covered the entire panel with Distress Ink, which makes the embossed images jump right off the page! I used plain water to remove some of the color within the flowers and leaves, and added some other colors to essentially re-color the images. The little bee was stamped and embossed on a scrap piece of paper and fussy cut before adding to the card front.

The card base was dry embossed using this fun honeycomb pattern and the sentiment was stamped on black cardstock and embossed with more white powder (I'm a bit obsessed with embossing...again!)

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's projects using today's release, Scribble Flowers, and check back next Friday for the next August stamp set release!
