So Very Grateful

As I did the rounds of the blogs that I regularly read, the other day, I spotted 
a card on Zoe's blog that reminded me of a technique that I hadn't used in a while.
Thus inspired, yesterday, Chris (sis-in-law) and myself set about making a couple of cards
utilising this technique.  Here's one of my cards.


Basically, what you do is stamp your image in Versamark, then heat emboss with 
White embossing Powder.  Colour everything in with White Re-Inker and an Aqua Painter.
Allow to dry, then colour in your image as desired.
I chose to leave the flowers white, and just paint the leaves with Old Olive ink.
Two tiny butterflies cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die, and embellished
with tiny Basic Pearls finish this card off nicely.
Colour combo is Crumb Cake and White with a hint of Old Olive
and the stamp set used is "So Very Grateful"
All products used are Stampin' Up!
I have once again left the card without a sentiment, but will add a small sentiment
when I decide what occasion I will be sending the card for.
Come back tomorrow and I'll show you another card that both Chris and I made
and I'll show you them both.
