Pretty Petals & Mini Tutorial

This card was designed for todays Inpiration Challenge on SCS. I received my Inpiration from this photo Here I first stamped the Pretty Petals background in wild wasabi
I then stamped the Tres chic in choc chip craft ink, so I could use embossing powder and heat.

Next I used the rose only from Both way Blossoms. I used both regal rose, and riding hood red for the roses. Then used my aqua painter to blend.

Then I wanted to distress the background, so I used Vintage Photo ink and went around the edges , and then used the sponge to blend the color in.

All done :)

I then added my bow with a button to the top, and 2 flowers with pearls to the to the bottom :)

Supplies needed
  1. stamps from SU or any other company you choose.
  2. ink pads(riding hood red, regal rose, wild wasabi, choc chip in craft ink. Distressed ink "Vintage Photo") Right now you can save 15% off of the Tim Holtz distressed inks at Pez-A-Doodle Designs
  3. clear embossing powder and heat gun.
  4. ribbons, buttons,flowers,pearls, and leaves!

    Thank you for looking and have a wonderful weekend!!!
