Sunset Meadows

I've had another play with my new 'Blooming Meadows' stamp (by Hero Arts)...and some new Distress Inks that I bought with a gift voucher I was given for my birthday :0)
I stamped the image in Versamark, then heat embossed it in Opaque White...before blending 'Wild Honey', 'Spiced Marmalade' and 'Fired Brick' inks over the top, to look like a sunset...although it kind of looks like a sunrise too! The papers are from the 'Ooh La La (for Him)' collection by My Mind's Eye...I embossed the plainer one using my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder, then added faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen.


Challenges for this card:
And...just before I go...as I was writing this post, the Postie brought me another birthday card! It's from my lovely ABC Christmas Challenge DT buddy Delphine...thank you...I love it!
