Monday's challenge at Simon Says Stamp is In My Garden. I had just finished this card for the SSS Wed. Challenge which is Make Your Own Background. Although I don't have any flowers in my garden yet this year, we do have daffodils and lilies popping up -- they just haven't bloomed yet.
For today's card, I first inked the front of the card base with Bundled Sage distress ink. Now that I re-inked the distress ink pads, they blend really nicely. Next I embossed the card front with the Sizzix leaves embossing folder which came in a bundle called Fall Set by Rachael Bright.
I wanted some sparkle to highlight the beauty of the leaves so I painted on some diamond Stickles. The flowers come in a set by Impression Obsession called Spring Wreath.
Products used: Impression Obsession Spring Wreath, Sizzix Fall Set ef by Rachael Bright, Sue Wilson Stitched Flags, stamp unknown, Bundled Sage distress ink, diamond Stickles.
