For All Things

We are having some HOT weather here...the wind is blowing and its not pretty.   Reminds me of fall when it starts getting cooler!   So thought I would do a card to pretend it's not so muggy and humid.

Beautiful Bunch

I was not able to play along with yesterday's fun No-Iron technique I used it with the color challenge for today on SplitCoastStampers!

So first I took a piece of crumbled wax paper and dipped it in the VersaMark ink.  The sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set.  There you have your base panel.  Or making your own designed series paper.
The side was the Scallop Trim Edge Punch in Sahara Sand.  The flowers are stamped with Hello Honey ink on the same paper. All the flowers are punched out using Petite Petal and Fun Flower Punches.
The stem and little leaves are cut out with Flower Fair Framelits Die, then I sponged the color before removing the give it some depth.
Then put it together...hope you like it! 
And stay cool!
