More Etched Daisy

Hello, Here to share another card made with the etched Daisy stamp from Hero Arts(F5741). This stamp along with a resist emboss technique are my current obsession.  

I started out with Stampin Up whisper white cardstock, stamp with versamark, then heat emboss with Tsukineko white embossing powder, it has a lovely thick feel to it. Once this has cooled and is hard set, I start dabbing in the centers with Brilliance Pearlescent Lime ink. I rub it in very firmly.  Next I added Brilliance Pearlescent Coral to the entire card. Once done I lightly rubbed it with an Ink Away craft cleaning wipe. Finally, I sponged the spaces between the flowers with Pearlescent Purple ink. I finished it up with another wipe. The Brilliance ink that I am using really adds a wonderful satin-y sheen. 

The stamped section was matted and tied with ribbon, the card based dry embossed, and a die cut sentiment added in yellow layered on top of pink to give a bit more dimension. And I could not leave well enough alone, I colored two sets of dots gold on the dry embossing.

Thanks for stopping by.
