hugs

capture-decran-2017-01-11-a-18-09-28Experimenting with mulberry papercapture-decran-2017-01-11-a-16-18-44 I saturated the midsection of my rectangular piece, using a brush, with Dylusion Ink Spray (in vibrant turquoise ….the closest blue tint I could get).  Die cutting the flowers 3 times and adhering them together, I used a crackle stamp from IO, to stamp the flowers in yellow pigment ink and then clear heat embossed.  To add more punch, I wrapped around the stem and the receptacles of the blooms with yellow thread.  Glossy black card stock was used for the “hugs” die cut and the border was made by using an old Martha Stewart punch.  This card was inspired by Kim‘s Freshly Made Sketche #270 and Color Throwdown’s #425 colour palette. january-2017

At the CAS Mix Up January Challenge, we’re using liquid colours, hope you’ll give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by and happy card making, HUGz Joannaimg_1386-2
