Hello! I am so glad to be here to share some inspiration using the new line.... Inked Messages by Stephanie Low for Spellbinders. You should have arrived here from the sweet Rubeena's blog HERE but if not, I have an entire blog hop list at the bottom of my post.
My first card uses the gorgeous rose from A Rose by Any Other Name. I white heat embossed the image on Bristol Smooth Watercolor Paper and colored in using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
Now while this set does have a coordinating die, I decided to do some selective fussy cutting of my image. Once trimmed out, I added some darker flicks of color to the leaves and petals. I added this to a white notecard that was scored every 1/2 inch from the bottom. This gave a perfect straight spot to stamp a sentiment.
My second card uses the large bloom from Bloom Where You are Planted. I black heat embossed the blooms and again colored them in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Using the coordinating die, the blooms were all die cut and clear gems added to the centers.
For my background, I wanted to create "frames" for my groupings of blooms. Using the Standard Circles Etched Dies from Spellbinders, I impressed some of the circle dies into my cardstock panel. My blooms were added along with the "bloom" sentiment and some clear gems.
