Echoes of Kindness


The images from this set, Echoes of Kindness (hostess Lev 2) were the perfect fit for this sketch. Pretty simple too, stamped the image in Basic Gray and used my SU Markers to color in the flowers and stamped the sentiment in Perfect Plum craft and embossed it with Clear EP. I then used my VersaMarker to highlight a few petals and then add some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heated it to set the sparkle. In person the card has a subtle but perfect shimmer. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you may get a better view. The edges were also sponged with Perfect Plum Craft ink and given some shimmer again with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Layered this on Pale Plum, which I gave decorative borders with the Eyelet Border Punch and placed on Perfect Plum. I used the perfect polka dot ribbon (non SU - shhhhhh, have had it forever in my stash) to accent the bottom and embellish with a little bow. Well, I am off to Florida in the AM. YIPEE!!! I hope to have a few more things posted for you while away, but I can't make any promises - sorry, it's been busy getting ready to go (hope you'll forgive me). Any questions, I will have access to my email - but be patient as I will be spending as much time outside in the warm sunshine as possible - hopefully basking in the sun on the beach !!!!!
