Summer Vacation - Sort of

Summer Vacation is here!
I am off to a slow start, things are a bit rocky over here. Please keep us in your prayers. This summer is a bit shorter than others by two weeks. You would think I would use my time more wisely, huh? I will get there. Anyway... As I was searching through my favorite blogs challenges, I was inspired for these two cards.


Wow, you can't tell the card bases are different colors! The left one has a black base, the right one has a dark purple base.  I use three different distress inks in the stamping and in the background. I really wish you could see the sparkle on the left one, I sprayed it with simmer mist.

Here's How:
On a piece of Neenah white cardstock, I stamped the flowers three times with versamark ink, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. then I filled in the background with three different distress inks using my ink blender. (Salty Ocean, Peacock feathers and Blueprint sketch). Then I stamped two with salty Ocean, and two flowers with Blueprint Sketch to show depth using my MISTI.  I may have used purple distress ink around the edges too. I love purple! No masking involved.

I entered the top card into one lonely challenge:

Seize the Birthday - Happy birthday

Thanks for stopping in. More to come!
