Coral



I fell in love with this coral stamp last week! I envisioned it as a white on white card, but my friend Tami posted a “red and white” challenge and Isa posted a faux resist challenge with distress inks, and voila! I was able to combine the two challenges. I love it when a plan comes together.

The image was stamped using Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. Once cool, I used my brayer to spread a very thin layer of Antique Linen ink with a lot of water all over the card. I sprayed it with my shimmer water for a subtle sheen and once it dried, I ironed off the embossing powder. I like the result very much! Thanks Isa and Tami for the challenges!
