Last Summer Fiesta

Remember the Butterfly Tree I did on vellum? Well, I liked it so much I thought I would try another image, but this time on regular White cardstock and embossing the Brilliance Moonlight White ink with Clear Embossing Powder. I really liked the result. The image is Fiesta Flower - H2330 by Leigh Hannan at Impression-Obsession.

It was painted with Twinkling H2O's. (NOTE - I heard LuminArte has been sold. They are going to limit their Twink colors to 72. They are offering a special on 12 new colors right now. It will be interesting to see what colors they keep.

The flower is painted with Cherry Sorbet and Buttercup in the center. The center was highlighted with Stickles Yellow and Orange Glitter Glue. 2MM Mark Richards pearls were added around the edges and a 5MM was used for the center. The leaves are Olive Vine, Sweet Alfalfa, and Mallard Green.

The backgrounds behind the flower and underneath the Spellbinder Scalloped Frame is one of Impression-Obsession's NEW Cover-a-Card stamps, Swirls - CC002. SU Pretty-In-Pink and Certainly Celery inks were used.

The left-over pieces of the 5.75X5.75 image are going to be used for trim on the inside upper portion of the card and lower left-hand corner of the envelope.

The White frame is from Spellbinders Frameabilities Scalloped Edge Frame. Note the site for this is new and a 20% discount and Free Shipping. The embossed dashes around the frame are painted with Cherry Sorbet. The Certainly Celery background behind the frame was measured.

The Pretty In Pink background was mounted to White cardstock.

The Fiesta Flower was mounted as shown with 3D Pop Dots to the Scalloped Frame.

That was mounted with 3D Pop Dots to the PIP background at an angle as shown.

Pearls were added in the upper left-hand corner. A Bow-Easy bow from Michael's ribbon was added in the bottom right-hand corner.

I used the Smile from Impression-Obsession's Clear Stamp Set Anytime Sentiments - CL43 in the lower left-hand corner of the frame.

This was a fun card. I have really missed stamping for me. LOLOL
