Hugs to you!

I hope this finds you all doing well. I know I haven't been posting quite as much lately...but studio time has been hard to come by. And it seems that keeping all the balls in the air is a major feat a times. Bear with me, will you? I'm hurrying as fast as I can. :)


For this card the main image is Stampendous Flower Fields cling mounted stamp. I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine Ink , embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder, then colored with Tombow Markers . The large yellow flower was stamped and layered with foam tape twice more. I added a Webster's Pages Rose & Pearl vintage sparkler to the center.

The main image panel was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Labels Eight Nestability. The panel behind it is Spellbinders Labels Seventeen . All designer paper is from the Crate Paper Portrait 6 x 6 paper pad.

The sentiment I used is from the JustRite Stampers Hugs to You large oval set. I added another of the Webster's Pages Rose & Pearl Vintage Sparklers to embellish. Distressing was added to the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks .

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to stop by! I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
