I have two cards to share with you today featuring this new set. For this first card, I stamped my image in clear ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder onto Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I watercolored my image with Zig Marker. I used No. 40 Green, No. 41 Light Green, No. 71 Flesh Color, No. 21 Light Carmine and No. 29 Geranium Red.

Once my panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment in Obsidian Black Ink using my Misti Tool.

My next was kind of an experiment. I started by ink blending the colors Dew Drops, Aqualicious and Teal Cave inks onto Neenah Solar White cardstock using a blending brush. Then I randomly stamped the image around my panel using copic friendly ink.

My experiment was to color the flowers over the ink blending. I used the copic colors G40, G43, G46, V12, V15, and V17.

I stamped the sentiments onto Pitch Black cardstock with clear ink and heat embossed in Gold. Then trimmed my sentiment into thin strips and attached to my card front with foam tape.
