I've really been blessed with gifts this year, from people that I have only met through the Hero Arts Flickr Group, never met them in real life, yet! So today I am posting a card I made with a gorgeous collage stamp that I received from my friend Lai-Yoke in the Netherlands (thank you Lai-Yoke).
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; designer paper (Pink Paislee)
Ink: Bundled Sage, Walnut Stain & Tea Dye distress inks; Versamark
Stamps: Kaisercraft; Stampin' Up (sentiment); Pink Paislee (Butterfly Garden)
Other: Perfect Pearls spray mist (Ranger); Butterfly punch (Martha Stewart); scalloped edge punch (Stampin' Up); pearl (old stash); clear embossing powder; dimensional squares
I used the emboss resist method to create the stamped panel. I first stamped and clear embossed the image and then applied a variety of distress inks to the panel. I stamped a border from the Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" set on the edge with some Walnut Stain. I then spritzed the entire panel with Perfect Pearls Mist. Oh boy, I love that shimmer! The central panel is popped up with some dimensional squares, as is the sentiment panel. You can see the shimmer from this angle.
