Vicky *Day 4*

Thanks everyone for waiting for this post. Between blogger and a couple of migraine headaches this week I am a bit behind! BIG thanks also to the wonderfully talented Vicky for allowing me to share a bit of her work this week. Remember you can also check out more of her stunners on her blog HERE. Here's our last inspiration card by Vicky: I love her bright colors and the white embossing REALLY pops! Here is my take:

Flower stamp by Penny Black, 3865K Gossamer. I began by stamping this with VersaMark Ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder on white cardstock. Next, I cut out the flowers and leaves and distressed them with Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, and Crushed Olive Distress Ink. The background behind the flower was distressed with Broken China, Crushed Olive, and Peeled Paint Distress Ink. The embossed background, Sizzix Texture Fade, was lightly inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Card base Penny Black Mix and Match Cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

See you on Monday with a new PB&J tutorial video--I can't wait to share! :)

Gorgeous!!! Love both cards. I'm so sorry you've had migraines-I know all too well what they feel like-had a couple this week myself. I can go through my entire prescription (9 pills) in less than a month! Hope you're feeling well now:)

Wow your card and Vicky's are bot stunning. I so love the white embossing and I love this flower stamp as well. I wish we could purchase Penny Black at our stores here in Canada but no such luck. Thanks for teasing me with more wants/needs for some amazing stamps. Love the boldness of these cards and texture is amazing on your card.
