ATSM #290- Your Kindness

It's the start of another challenge over at ATSM and it's a photo inspiration! Love the chic look of the photo with it's colors and textures on the frames.

I chose the color theme to use for my card and wanted to add the texture from the frames. I started by stamping the images on the some light green cardstock. Since I used a layering stamp set on the cardstock, I started the first layer of stamping with some white pigment ink. Then layered the other colors on top and used the matching dies to cut them out.

I ran the white panel through my die cutting machine with an embossing folder. I realized after I embossed that I had forgotten to stamp my sentiment and the little flowers first... Doh! So I used my MISTI to carefully stamp the sentiment and flowers. Which worked out great since I knew I'd have to stamp it a few times because of the embossed texture. There were a few spots in the sentiment that I couldn't get to stamp correctly, so I used a micron pen to color those areas better. I glued the stems of the leaves directly to the card panel under the carnation popping the leaf tips up with a pop dot and adhered the carnation with foam adhesive as well to finish the card!

Just love the look with the dimension and texture!
