here. It takes some time, but it looks so cool!
I started by embossing the large In Bloom flower in the corner. I masked it to add the leaves on each side, embossing them right away so I wouldn't smudge anything when I did the words. I used sentiments from several different PTI sets to build my sentiment cluster. I wanted to mirror the bloom in the opposite corner. Once those were all embossed, I added the shadowing with Fresh Snow ink. I used a white colored pencil to add a few lines, and then sponged areas of the card with ink to mimic chalkboard dust. For a final touch, I punched three tiny hearts from Limeade Ice to pull in my card base color. Quite happy with the result!
Enjoy the rest of the blog hop here!
