JAI#364 copper and white flowers

 A super quick post to get my card entry in on time.

Opened up a set I have been longing to use.
Thanks JAI for the inspiration picture.

I've picked up the copper from the vase in the copper embossing, the brick motif on the embossing paste, the timber in the embossed vellum and the white and yellow flowers in the painted flowers.
After heat embossing with white powder on white Craft Ink stamped image, I coloured the leaves and flowers with white Craft ink using the blender pen, then coloured over the dry white images with Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight using the blender pen.  It's a lovely soft image coloured this way. The colour palette from the picture also included Smoky Slate cardstock layered behind the Crumb Cake panel. The word "lovely comes from the new Lovely word thinlits- so beautiful, and I then embossed the whole piece with the Copper Powder. The little friendis from Teeny Tiny sentiments - I looked through all my sets for "my" but couldn't find one- can you believe it? maybe I do need that Labeller set after all! Next time.......

I treated myself and finally purchased Butterfly Basics. It's a beautiful set and worth the wait.

and remember

"don't just post online
post something pretty!"
