Hello and welcome...
Another 'dinky' card today!
  • I started with a piece of black card stock and rubbed my anti-static bag all over it
  • using a clear embossing ink pad I stamped the 'rose vase' stamp then covered it with white detail embossing powder
  • I used left-over Pixie Powders from my palette to paint the roses
  • with a white pencil I randomly added dots around the petals
  • I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment to the bottom right of the card using the same ink pad and embossing powder
  • I assembled all my  black and white mats and layers then used a blue water pencil to colour 3 parts of the vase followed by applying glossy accents over that area to give an appearance of water.  I don't think the 'water' will look as deep as this once thoroughly dried

The card measures 5"x5.5"
