Fifth Avenue Floral

Good Morning! Today's card share uses my favourite floral stamp, Fifth Avenue Floral. I really love the line drawn images in this set, there's so much room for creativitiy!! I embossed the largest flower with white embossing powder onto Shimmery White cardstock.  Then I spritzed with water and dropped a selection of reinkers into the pools of water, allowing them to travel where they wanted and fill in the spaces. It was alot of fun, especially if you are the type of person who enjoys dabbling in the artsy side of stamping!! I did a whole page of these flowers, all different colours! Was a great way to spend an afternoon :-)

Stamp Set: Fifth Avenue Floral, Sketch It (long retired but I still love the sentiments in this set!)
Cardstock: Orchid Opulence (soon to retired!), Certainly Celery, Shimmer White, Whisper White
Ink: Orchid, and various other purple hued colours, Basic Black
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Versamark, Floral embossing folder, chalks to colour the folder, sewing machine, Leaf Sizzlit, Dazzling Diamonds, half back pearls

Thanks for dropping by and hope your Wednesday is fabulous!!
