CASE Study #207

I saw the inspiration photo for this latest challenge over at CASE Study  and was so inspired.

 
Isn't this just the prettiest, elegant looking card.   I knew that the new stamps I got from Tiffany would be prefect.  One of the sets she sent me was a floral one by Clearly Besotted.  This is the first time I've used this company's stamps and I have to say I am impressed with them.


I white embossed the flower a number of times onto some vellum that I had die cut with a Lil' Inkers die.  I then turned over the piece and used Copics to colour. This way, the white embossing doesn't get discoloured.  I clear embossed the black sentiment from another Clearly Besotted set.  Added some clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins and a few gems.   Adding this to the Stamp It and Blog it at Simon Says Stamp to celebrate STAMPtember. 

The mojo has been on holiday for a few days but the new goodies from Tiffany really got me going.  I got another card done tonight as well.  This one used a Hero Arts stencil and the Simon Says Ink that was in Tiffany's box


The inks colours are Cotton Candy and Mint.  I used a Kaisercraft sentiment white embossed onto black card. The green enamel dots were also in the goodies from Tiffany.  

Looking forward to the weekend so I can get some more play time.
