Here is another card that I made for Mothers Day:
For this card I used:
Hero Arts CG403 - Large Flower Background
Distress Markers - Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters
Recollections Pesto Embossing Powder
Stampendous Detailed White Embossing Powder
To make the card, I stamped the background image with Versamark, added the Detailed White embossing powder and heat set. The flowers and leaves were then colored with the Distress Markers. Once complete, I carefully wiped off any of the ink on the embossing. The sentiment was stamped on vellum with Versamark, and the Pesto Embossing powder added and heat set. The strip of vellum was then added to the image and the entire piece added to the card base.
