Inky Flowers

I have a couple of inky cards to share today, using a stamp set from Honey Doo Crafts called 'Spring Flowers'.

I stamped the images using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed them in white, before blending Distress Inks over the top. On the card with the leaves, I used Lucky Clover, Cracked Pistachio & Mermaid Lagoon:


And on the card with the flowers, I used Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves & Picked Raspberry:


On both cards, I matted the panels on to some silver mirror card, and added a sentiment (from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual) stamped on to a banner shape.

Challenges for these cards:
