Victorine Originals Challenge #2 ~ Flowers

Today is the start of Challenge #2:  Flowers on the Victorine Originals blog The card I created for inspiration includes a technique I recently saw in a video, and the Floral and Sayings stamp set from Victorine Originals was perfect to create it!
I started off by stamping the floral stamp with versamark and used white embossing powder to heat emboss it.  Then I added post-it notes along the line of the stamp to block off the parts I didn't want shaded by the inks.  The first color I used was Spun Sugar Distress Ink and worked from the center of the image out.  (Tip:  Always start your blending on the post-it note and work your way onto the cardstock to avoid harsh lines)  The other color I used was Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and that was on the outside of the pink.  Rotate the paper and do the same process on the bottom half of the stamped image.  Wipe off excess ink from the embossing using a paper towel.
I used Shabby Shutters Distress Ink to stamp the sentiment.  The dies I used are Gina Marie Designs scalloped stitched rectangles and stitched rectangles.  The cardstock I used is from DCWV's Fairytale Dreams and Whites special materials stacks.  Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine and a few sequins finished off the card!
