The largest flower ever


Hello sweeties, we have a new challenge at Sweet Stampin', no designer paper. Remember that you need to stamp, digi or rubber doesn't matter. My stamping effort wasn't a grande one, only the sentiment, but the flower is even the more overwhelming. But now when I think about it, I used an embossing folder for stamping and embossing :)

We're being sponsored by Flat Friends, please check our blog for all the details and to see the teams gorgeous cards.




Materials used:
I applied Aqua Markers at one side of a fabulous Itsy Bitsy embossing folder, spritzed a mist of water, layered up the paper and ran in it through the Cuttlebug. 

Impression Obsession sentiment stamped with Aqua Marker and Brushed Corduroy Distress ink (to get the right colour), heat embosssed with clear embossing paper. Itsy Bitsy flower. DQWV and Panduro cardstock.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  7. Never thought to try w/c markers on the EF, but this surely yielded such a lovely result. The damask pattern with the solid was a pretty background for that splendid flower. Just the kind of card I like to receive myself. TFS & Hugs
