Fabulous Florets Wedding

Hi again, I really think Mother Nature is going through some sort of crisis. It was so cool here today, I could have easily put on a fall jacket. This is just crazy, between the unfortunate people who are getting flooded out, and the farmers who can't plant their crops etc. etc. etc. Please Mother Nature take a pill or something to get back to normal.

As I mentioned the other day, I am doing this Farmer's Market thing and my card today was made with that in mind.

I used the Fabulous Florets stamp set. I stamped the large stamp with Versa Mark and then heat embossed it with Iridescence Ice. It does not show well in the picture but it is very pretty in real life.

I cut it out with a Nestabilities die as well as the piece that is is layered on. I still had some of the Bride DSP so I thought I would use it for the first layer and the matting layer of the stamped design. Going to get through all my retired paper yet. LOL

I added some of the small pearls to the centre of the flower. When I was about to stamp the sentiment, I felt that white embossing would be hard to see and Black ink to dark, so I used Going Grey it gave it a soft feeling rather than a blatant black.

The first white layer is also from the Bride DSP, I ran it through the big shot with the Delicate Dots Embossing Folder. I have to say I like it much better in real life it looks a bit over powering in the photo.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is great! I love this stamp set, but all too often it is used exclusively with Brights inks. Lovely to see it as such an elegant neutral!

I think it looks lovely in the picture. I'm sure real life is much better. Beautiful design and love the almost all white look.
