Inspired by Stamping - Aster

Hi everyone and thanks so much for popping by. 

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using the New Release stamp sets Aster and Teeny Tiny Greetings from Inspired by Stamping.

Here is my card -

I started by embossing the flowers with white powder. Using Distress Inks and a cotton bud, I applied the colour. Then I fussy cut it out.

By adding the ink with the cotton buds, I was able to have good control over where I wanted my colour. I could even get a bit more definition by adding more colour in spots where I wanted shading.

The bottom panel looks very dark (nearly black) in my photos but it is a deep shade of purple. 

Isn't the Aster just beautiful!

The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Greetings set and was embossed with white powder.

Well, I bet you have been amazed by all the New Release sets you have seen over the last few days. I have been very excited to use them and hope to provide a little inspiration.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Allsorts - Stitching Real or Faux
A Creative Romance - In the Garden
Cute Card Thursday - Dies or Punches

Thanks so much for looking xx
