Hello Joy Clair friends!  Betsy here today with my take using the Forever Moments digital stamp set.  I love a floral spray and this one is lovely!  The set comes with some inspiring sentiments and 2 different florals.  Let me show you how I made my card!   I first composed my floral image and sentiment in the computer and then printed it out onto cream card stock.

I had my card pretty well thought out and I wanted to die cut my focal panel with an oval die.  I found a stitched one in my stash and die cut the panel at this point.

At this point I switched to the background.  Using a red rubber background stamp from my stash, I stamped it in black pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I used the same cream card stock for this.

I next applied ink with a blending brush and Salt Water Taffy Distress Ink.  I went soft and tried not to saturate it with too much color.

I didn’t bother to ink blend the center as the focal panel would cover it.  I adhered this panel to a top folding A2 size card made from the same cream card stock.  Next, using Distress Oxide Inks in Salt Water Taffy and Bundled Sage, I painted the flower branch.  Since this is plain card stock, I just painted a coat over each area.  I didn’t use a lot of water and really didn’t do any shading.

I backed this oval panel with a piece of double sided foam adhesive sheet and placed it in the center of my card.  The only bit of embellishment I used was some Key Lime Jewel Drops.

 And that finished my card!
