Hello Darling

I was able to finish up one more quick card yesterday, this one for the current Mama Elephant Challenge.

I embossed that gorgeous doily stamp with white detail powder, then added a wash of color using Pickled Raspberry Distress Ink and a water brush.

After the panel was fully dry, I stamped the sentiment and then used a Versamark marker to color select portions of the doily.  After restamping the doily, I added silver embossing powder.  I wish you could see how cool it looks in real life!

Some tiny clear gems finished it off.

Have a wonderful Friday!
