Botanical Silhouettes

A quick post today as my Mom in Law is visiting but I wanted to share the card I made yesterday evening using my new favourite colour, Bundled Sage distress ink!

Paper: PTI cardstock & patterned paper; Neenah
Ink: Bundled Sage, Milled Lavender & Dusty Concord DI; HA Soft Leaf shadow ink; Versafine Onyx Black; Versamark
Stamps: Hero Arts (Flower Pattern CG241); PTI (Botanical Silhouettes)
Other: Clear embossing powder; Stampin' Up scalloped edge punch

I stamped the Flower Pattern cling stamp using Versamark on Neenah cardstock and then inked over the entire panel with Bundled Sage.  I then stamped the centre panel and adhered it to the purple dotted patterned paper.  The centre panel was then adhered with some dimensional foam to the main panel.  I just love the soft colours and the beautiful font in the PTI set!

Thanks for visiting!  See you tomorrow!  And have an absolutely fabulous Sunday!  It's another scorcher here today so we will be in and out of the pool all day I am sure!

Hi, Brenda! Hope you stay near/in the pool. Poor Texas eally needs a cooling rain.
Love your card. Was thinking of getting bundled sage, and the beauty of your card shows me it is a wonderful color. Love what you did here!
