Elizabeth *Day 2*



Here's our next gorgeous card by Elizabeth:
Once again Elizabeth has truly blown me away with her ability to make such an elegant card using such fun, bright colors! I love the light background she has created for her beautiful flowers and I just can't get enough of the bright green and pink combination!


Here's my take, again using this great stamp by Penny Black, 30-031 flower gallery (I'm using it all week):
The background for the flowers was created by inking my acrylic block with Crushed Olive and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I spritzed the acrylic block with water and then pressed it on my paper. Once dry, I added a bit of Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to the edges using an ink blending tool and foam applicator. The flower was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Markers and Copic markers. I then cut it out and adhered it to the green panel using dimensional adhesive. The white background was embossed and then inked lightly with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Thanks so much for popping by! HUGS!
