Wonderful Friend

DSCF5951

My last card for today is one I finally completed for the JUGS Color Challenge #8, and the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch #126:

JUGS8ssc126

I had an embossed heart from Always laying on my desk (I am in clean-up mode) from a Diva challenge where I used the wrong color, so I thought I would incorporate it into my card:

DSCF5950

An interesting sketch; I struggled a little with it and the colors, although these are some of my favorites!!  The heart was stamped in Bashful Blue craft ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. I used Bashful Blue ink and an aquapainter to wash some color over the embossing for shadowing & depth.   Papers are from the Hostess Patterns III pack; you may be able to see the floral pattern from Boho Backgrounds stamped on the Bashful Blue panel at the bottom.  I was asked in an earlier post what white ink I use, but there was no email address to which I could reply; I almost always use SU's Craft White ink, which is what I used here and on my Top Note snowman's snowflakes!  The sentiment is also from Boho Backgrounds, it is not a set I use very often, but I should!  The three little flowers have some non-SU bling added to the centers.

Thanks for visiting today, I am so glad you did!
