More Friendship Blooms

Trimmed a panel of cardstock and stroked ink cubes to form the design you see. I tried out different combinations of ink pads and cardstocks, and decided that one inch ink cubes on white cardstock worked best for me. These are a combination of Hero Arts and Altenew inks. I found very juicy or dark colors didn't work well.

When the panel is dry (wait!), stamp an outline image. In this case I used the beautiful Friendship Blooms set, by Hero Arts and Gina K. Looked through my stash and found this "hi" from an older Stamp Market set and decided it was the right size. Embossed in white on black and die cut.

Added some clear gems and adhered the panel with foam tape.


I like how this came out.

I've been making Christmas cards and hope to post a few soon. Also I'm practicing using my Hot Foil system and hope to share some cards and thoughts next week.  In the meantime, stay safe!

The color choices always get my cards looking muddy when I do this. Yours are vibrant and appealing! I didn't notice the embellishment drops at first, the color was my awe moment. Happy Thursday. Faye
