Exotic Blooms

This is Part 2 of yesterday's card.  Like I said, I cut into a 6 X 6 page and made two cards with it.  So this is my second card which I will also submit to Simon Says Stamp's current challenge with is "Anything Goes".

Paper: Sweet Threads (BasicGrey); Neenah solar white; Paper Studio notecard
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage, Dried Marigold, Walnut Stain Distress ink; Versamark
Stamps: Exotic Bloom (Hero Arts); PTI 2011 Anniversary set (sentiment)
Other: Pearls  (old stash); pearlized spray; Corner Chomper

I simply used the emboss resist technique and applied a variety of distress inks to the image.



Oh, and I have just realised that Hero Arts has published their March contest, it's all about flowers (or a colour palette or technique), you can see all the details HERE.  So I am going to submit it to that challenge too, getting an early start!

Wishing you a really fabulous day!

You do wonders with the pp, Brenda! It's a simple design, but soooo pretty. Love all the distressing on the center panel :)

That PP is very pretty and I love how you have used it in these two cards.

Love the colours on the resist embossing, Brenda! Like half of the card pp and the other half left with white space.
