I am a great fan of all things Jennifer McGuire and love watching her videos. Recently she did one where she mangaed to get two card from one blending, stamping and embossing - so after a few false starts - such as my clear embossing powder being contaminated with white powder and one card getting stuck together - I ended up with one set of two cards. I was inspired by my blog friend Sally with her choice of background stamp - a Hero Arts background stamp called Leaf and Floral background.
I chose some Distress Oxides in Broken China, Weathered Wood and Cracked Pistashio to blend as my background. Then I clear embossed the Leaf and Floral background. I liberally spritzed the panel, added another on top and ran through my Cuttlebug.
Here are my two cards
This is the first pane.. You can still see the beautiful glossy background. I took a Gina K oval and scalloped oval to make the focal point. I added a sentiment from a Gina K sentiment. I stamped a flower from Altenew Line Art stamps using the same colours in Distress inks. I die cut it and a couple of other layers to make the flower stand up a bit better. Added a few clear gems.
And here is the second panel I got.
