Kinda Eclectic Color

 

Kinda Eclectic Card with embossing

 

I really wish you could see this card in person because the texture just doesn’t come though in the photos. 

To make the front of this card, I inked up the stamps from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set with Crushed Curry ink and then added Perfect Plum, Island indigo and Old Olive inks to the stamp with daubers. After huffing to re-moisten. I stamped the images onto the Whisper White card stock piece. After stamping all of the images and allowing them to dry completely, I used my VersaMark ink pad and applied ink over the top of the images using the direct to paper technique and avoiding going right to the edges.  Next, I sprinkled clear embossing powder over the card front and with my finger, I roughed up the powder in a few places before heating with the heat gun.

I made the card itself by applying the same colors of ink to the Whisper White card stock and then repeated the process by applying VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder to the card itself before heat embossing.

The last step was to added a Crushed Curry ink butterfly – also embossed with clear embossing powder – and a pearl coloured with the Old Olive Blendabilities.

I hope the photo below gives a bit of a better view of the finished card and how it shines.
