IBS Blog Hop - Summer Flowers

Hi there! 

Just a quick post for me today.

I ordered a couple of beautiful sets from Inspired by Stamping and would like to share one of them with you.

I've also been wanting to try the Alcohol Ink technique (that I did on glossy cardstock) on Vellum. So, I dotted my transparency sheet with a few drops of ink, misted them with alcohol blender and pressed my sheet of vellum on top of it. 

Here is my card using this technique -

Once I had the vellum 'coloured' I stamped these gorgeous flowers and leaves with versamark and then heat embossed with white powder.

This is definitely one of those cards that look so much nicer in real life because the colours are so lovely.

I have used Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White for my cardstock. One panel of Wisteria Wonder was embossed with a honeycomb folder. The silver ribbon and bow was a pain to attach but I won this battle!

I am entering this card into the IBS Blog Hop Challenge


I was also inspired by a couple of the WHW Tutorials that the wonderful DT over there put together each week.

The first was Leah's card made with these flowers (I just used alcohol ink instead) and then Colleen's card showing us how to create these bows. Thank you, ladies!!

Thanks so much for looking xx
