Beautiful Inspiration...

Hello!  It is Day 1 of our Papertrey Ink November Release.  Today we are showcasing the new sets....

Better Together
Inspired: Mercy
Leaf & Sprig Frames (Dies)


This first card showcases Better Together and Inspired: Mercy....

I used a Soft Stone card base for this card.  I added the card front after stamping the large floral image in a light gray ink.  I die cut Mercy out of white cardstock and then colored it with a mint Copic.  I covered the Mercy die in Glossy Accents and then did an ombre type glitter treatment....solid glitter at the bottom and then lighter up to the top of the die cut.  I added the rest of the sentiment in black ink on the card front.

This next card show the same large flower image I used on the first card, but this time, I used it as the focal point.

I heat embossed the large image with black embossing power and then used Zig Markers to color it in.  The background panel is the Comic Strip Cover Plate.

This last card showcases one of the new Leaf and Sprig Frame dies....

I did some ink blending and water droplets in the background, after masking off a rectangle.  I added in the heat embossed sentiment from Better Together and then topped it off with the frame.  I colored and added in the flowers for a pop of color.
