Embossed Lily Of The Valley And Brayered Scenes

Hello and welcome.  Today I am sharing a card made with the newest mini set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company called Lily Of The Valley.  For my card, I decided to keep the design clean and simple (CAS) and allow the stamp itself be the focal point.

The image is stamped in memento black and colored with prismacolor markers before layering onto black card stock then layering onto a white dry embossed panel.  The only embellishments I added were some punched butterflies with bling center.

My next two cards to share today features the new 5th set called Marsh Silhouettes and I just LOVE it!  For both of them, I dusted off my brayer and kalidacolor ink pads.  After brayering the ink onto glossy card stock and allowing the ink to dry, I then stamped my images in Ranger archival ink very carefully and added some birds from Scenic Selections.  Note: too much pressure applied to the stamp on glossy card stock will cause the stamp to "move" and give a blurry image.  Here are the completed cards.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Don't forget the Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company new release blog hop starts tomorrow.  See you then.
