CC68 - Be Happy



Oh my, have you seen the pretty inspiration at this week's challenge for The Card Concept?




I was inspired by the lime flowers and the aqua background. I decided to use a Clean and Simple Style. I stamped my flower border before using matching dies to cut masks. I then sponged some distress ink, fading it out towards the centre of the card. I added some distress ink (using daubers) and stickles to the centres of the flowers. I embossed my sentiment in silver to pick up the chrome napkin holder in the photo.

I used:
-Essentials By Ellen Bohemian Garden and matching dies
-Essentials By Ellen Up the Happy

Okay if I ever make it back to Canada and we can meet up I need you to teach me your fade out inking technique. You're so brilliant at it and I cannot get it right!
