Hope Blooms

Hello and Happy Wednesday, I hope your week is going great!  Today's make and share features a large bouquet, heat embossing and watercoloring.


This card measures 5" square, the floral bouquet and sentiment are part of the Altenew Simply Spring stamp set.  This image is huge, as you can see, I trimmed some off (which hurt my heart) so I could arrange it on the card front.  

I heat embossed using copper embossing powder and watercolored, cut out with the coordinating dies and mounted on foam pads for dimension.  The designer papers are from the Bo Bunny "Family Heirlooms Collection".  I stamped the sentiment on a snippet of the designer paper using Charcoal Brown ink by Gina K. Designs.  Finishing up, I added a Polka Dot Ribbon, Bow and faux Pearls for interest.  My attempt at a "Vintage" theme.

I would like to remind you of my challenge at The Inspiration Station.  Please visit and be inspired by the photo and enter your design!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Donna
