If Friends were flowers

I have a new Deep Red card to share today. The stamp can be found at A Cherry on Top and

You may remember THIS card that I made using the same stamp but in yellow and without the bird. This time I kept the whole stamp together. The image is heat embossed in white embossing powder by Stamp N Plus and Versa Mark ink. I used a finger sponge to make the bird purple and then the rest of the card pink with distress ink and an ink blender.

The background is a floral stencil that I applied distress inks on to first and then added translucent embossing paste on top of that. I did this on a large piece of Strathmore watercolor paper thinking I would use distress inks on the edges. Well I haven't quite done that on either one of the cards using this back ground but it could happen with the one or two of the remaining embossed pieces. The other card I made using this background can be found HERE. I added Liquid Pearls to the center of a few of the flowers and a piece of Michael's ribbon to the lower left corner.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
