Embossing Folders & White Ink

Hi Everybody,

At the moment I am into easy to make cards and they don't come much easier than this one.

It is a 6" Square with a separate panel on the top.
The embossing folder has been covered with white ink using a brayer and taken through the machine.

This adds the ink onto your card into the background for a soft and gentle look.

Then with the blue and yellow inks I have picked out the detail in the flowers using the new blending brushes from Altenew.

The panel has then been added to a white base card and the "Good Vibes Only" die is from Spellbinders but it is a very old one and may no longer be available. I have cut that four times and stacked them up to give depth to the front of the card and basically that is it

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
