Cased Embrace Life cards
I love all the samples using the “Embrace Life” set with the coordinating “Ginger Blossoms” designer series paper and had to case a couple:
Cased with changes from “nitestamper” whose card can be seen at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga…2563?cat=12243
I stamped the flowers in Versamark on Ruby Red cardstock, embossed with Black Embossing Powder, then used a Q-tip to bleach out the images. I couldn’t quite get the bleaching to look as nice as the inspiration card so I added some watercoloring once the bleach dried. I really like layering the different punches for the sentiment.
