Flourishes Hops with Imagine Crafts...Imagine That!

Happy Cyber Monday!
Welcome to my studio.

I am privileged to be included in the Imagine Crafts and Flourishes Hop!
I had so much fun experimenting with embossing powders and ink on this card.
First, I cut out a frame using Flourishes' Exclusive Classic Frames large die.
Using Delicata Pigment ink in Celestial Copper, I inked up Flourishes' Diamond Background stamp. I sprinkled half of the stamped image with Imagine Crafts' Verdigris Embossing Powder and half with Imagine Crafts' Clear Embossing Powder.

After melting the powders with my heat tool, I inked the edges of the frame with more of the copper ink, and embossed it with the clear powder.

Then I did something cool...I inked up the whole die cut
with a Brilliance Pearlescent Dew Drop Ink Pad in Beige. I heat embossed the die cut using the clear embossing powder again.

The flower image comes from the Winter Blooms stamp set by Flourishes.
The flowers are called, Paperwhites. I had never heard of them until Jan Marie asked me to illustrate this set. I researched and learned about them. Now they are one of my favorite winter flowers!

Winter Blooms

 The Paperwhites are colored with Dew Drop Pearlescent ink pads in Beige, Poppy and Crimson. I stamped the three colors on an acrylic block to create a sort of, "palette", then used my waterbrush to paint the flowers.

The sentiment is from the set entitled, Christmas Sentiments.

This set was fun to create...I even wrote a little poem for it!
 The sentiment is stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink, onto a die cut
from the same set mentioned above.

Hopefully you can see the Imagine Crafts' Shimmer Spritz Sparkle
I added to the entire surface of the card. It give it such a festive touch.
 I have another card done with Imagine Crafts and Flourishes...
