For my card I used the Healing Hugs stamp set. I stamped the floral from the set onto a panel of Cornflower blue cardstock with Gina K’s In the Navy ink. I then colored that in with Prismacolor pencils.
Using the same floral stamp I stamped around the edge of the panel using Versamark ink. I picked out the “Get Well Soon” sentiment which fits perfectly inside the floral wreath. I stamped that with the In the Navy ink and then I stamped it again right on top with Versamark ink. This way I was able to emboss over that sentiment with a clear embossing powder.
I dragged my Versamark ink pad along the edges of the panel and then embossed that with silver embossing powder. I blended some white ink onto the center of the card and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink along the edges. Using a clean cloth I wiped away any of that ink that was on the embossed areas.
I popped up that panel onto a 6x6 card base made out of In the Navy cardstock. Next I used a white gel pen to add a small amount of highlights to the flowers. I also took that pen and added little dots in different sizes around the wreath.
To finish up the card I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the centers of all the flowers to add some dimension.
