Here’s my card:

I really liked the bright, bold florals from the model’s dress especially contrasting against the black. I began by creating a distress ink panel by smooshing matching colours onto my craft matt, spritzing with water and laying down a panel of cardstock into the inky puddles. I lifted out the panel, heat set and repeated the process until I’d achieved the look I was going for.

After the inky panel was dry, I stamped Penny Black’s 40-283 Floral Tapestry with Versamark Ink, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set.

Using Black Soot Distress Ink and an ink blender, I sponged black ink over the panel – the areas with clear embossing powder resisted the ink, allowing the exposed areas to be coloured black!

I then used the Penny Black 51-121 Sun Fire die to die-cut the gorgeous floral shape out of the panel and foam mounted it to the card front. I stamped a sentiment from 30-105 Gratitude with black dye ink next to the floral piece.

To finish up, I added a few different coloured Doodlebug enamel dots!

    Wow, that texture and design on your flower is just awesome. Those little enamel dots are just the perfect finishing touches, too. Thanks for sharing.

    Absolutely stunning card! Love your take on the dress pattern, and your coloring! TFS—and I thought it was cut from FABRIC at first! You are very talented!
