Thank you for joining Flourishes LC and Imagine Crafts on this fabulous Cyber Monday for our first blog hop together, we are excited to share with you our designer’s creativity using each company’s products and each designer's unique style. Make sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog as we will be giving prizes away randomly from two of the designer’s blogs.
For my card today, I turned to Flourishes set called Winter Blooms. The Christmas cactus really called out to me. My mother and sister are in constant competition to get their cactus to bloom first. Our school librarian has her Christmas cactus at the check out desk and it has been blooming for a month and a half, at least. Bev Cole illustrated this gorgeous set which has the image I used, as well as Paperwhites and Poinsettias.
Flourishes is only half of the story here. Of course, the other half of today's story is about Imagine Crafts! I needed to back up my image with something and my Versamark stamp pad was the perfect choice. I wanted to keep with the pinkish-red color of the blooms. To do this, I embossed my card stock and then used a small brayer to apply my Versamark ink. This gave my raised embossing a darker tone than the rest of the card stock. I love the tone on tone look. I think it compliments my image very nicely.
If you have just stumbled upon my blog today, you will want to head back to the beginning of the hop. You won't want to miss a single step! You have until early Wednesday morning to finish commenting. Winners will be drawn after that.
