The big come-back?!

Hello Everyone, I'm back!

Truth be told, I probably won't be here too regularly yet, as the Little One still needs a lot of attention and takes a lot of my time, however if I do manage to get my fingers inky every now and again, I will most certainly do my best to pop by! The plan is to be back on a regular basis in 2016, but we shall see how that goes! :o)

Today I am sharing a card I made using the same Delicate Florals stamp by Penny Black that I used in my last (August) post - I just love this one so much! You can also see that it's easy enough to play around with different techniques, and get a completely different end result, which is great!

The colour inspiration came from the Sparkle and Shine challenge. I stamped the image with the VersaFine Ink in black, and then heat embossed it. The coloured strip was added using Distress Inks. I then went over the flowers with some clear Wink of Stella which bleached the colour a bit and added some sparkle - LOVE this effect! The sentiments come from 2 different stamp sets - one by Mama Elephant and one by WPlus9. I also used the Femme Frames dies by Mama Elephant for the layers. And, to finish off the card, I added a few sequins, too! 

I have to say, I'm quite pleased with the result, so hope you like it too!

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Sparkle and Shine - Photo inspiration
