Embossed flowers

Hi everyone, I've used the scored grid again on this card, scored at half inch intervals diagonally across the white background panel and then dotted yellow stickles where the diagonals meet. The image is a Queen Anne's Lace by Starving Artistamps which was stamped with versamark and versafine smokey grey ink several times then heat embossed. I sponged all around the bottom part of the image with Ranger distress ink in tea dye and graduated it up the panel. Added the Inkadinkado bird and sentiment stamp and matted on some white card. The Card blank is a piece of silvery grey pearlescent card and I used the off cut to make the panel behind the image, it's covered with some very fine cobweb type fabric which has gold and silver metallic inclusions. Added pearls to the corners of the image to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
