I made this card for my step mom for Mother's Day. It has a few different techniques to it. The circle is watercolor paper by Strathmore that I heat embossed with clear embossing powder by Stamp N Plus. The circle is cut from my Creative Memories cutting system and the ink for the stamp is Versa Mark. After it was embossed, I covered the paper with Ranger gold metallic distress stain. Because the distress products react with water I sprayed the circle with a mist of water and wiped off the area around the stamped image to reveal its embossing. That stamp is by Inkadinkado. I stamped a flower stamp by Hero Arts (very old) using Hero Arts black ink (love that ink). The flower needed a center, so I took some yellow and white beads by Queen and Co with some Glossy Accents by Ranger and made a clump. To finish up the card patterned paper was added along with a tag by Colorbok. The patterned paper has a decorative edge from using a Martha Stewart punch on it.
Thanks for looking.
