Here we go!
I made this card using the Embossing Folder called Playful Scallops. Using the stamp pad, I smooshed the three different colors on the embossing folder with each stamp pad stacking the three colors (Candy Apple, Clover and the Canary) next to each other. Then I put a piece of White Daisy into the embossing folder with another piece of cardstock for a shim and run it through the embossing machine. Voila! The ink was transferred to the White Daisy in a very interesting way! I cut it to the size I needed and doodled around the edge with a black journal pen after dovetailing the bottom. Added the trim to the top. I adhered this piece to a piece of Sapphire and hand trimmed around so just a tiny bit shows. Makes it pop off the page.
I cut the White Daisy sentiment from the Cricut. Stamped the designs from the stamp set called: Sticky Notes fussy cutting a tiny square for the word for, fussy cutting one of the flowers to pop it off and the leaf vine came from the Cricut. I used the Intense Black to stamp the designs on with and then water colored with the inkpads. You can use watercolors or markers to color in instead.
Love these colors! They are part of the color line up of the March Paper Pack called Falling For You. The background paper on the card and the trim on the banner are from that paper pack.
I used the pattern for the card in the Make It From Your Heart-Vol. 4 Pattern 6.
