Floral Pottery

Hello, and welcome to my blog. Today I'm going to show you a card that I made. I like to make encouraging cards with Bible verses on Wednesdays because Word Art Wednesday always has a great verse for us to use. I like the King James, but it's not always received well, so sometimes I wish they would provide it in a more modern version. But God's word is His word no matter the language, and it will not return void.

The sketch I used is from Freshly Made, and the colors are from Color Throwdown. I chose Taffy, Baby Pink, Watermelon, and Topiary. I'm also entering this into the Bright and Cheerful challenge at Simon Says.

I saw this technique used recently and I wanted to try it. I stamped the flowers in White Daisy pigment ink, then sprinkled on white embossing powder and heat embossed the flowers. Then I used the ink pads and a paintbrush with water to color in the flowers. I really like how it turned out.

I'm so glad I got my printer hooked up. I haven't used it in over two years! I'm going to be able to make these cards every week now, Lord willing!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy
B&Ts: Free to Be Me
Stamps: Springtime Wishes
Ink: White Daisy, Watermelon, Topiary, Taffy, Baby Pink
Other: white embossing powder (not CTMH)
