Embossed Birthday 5 x 7 card

Decided to post a second card from the "Batch" waiting.

This was one that played around with the few new oxide inks and did a background and then embossed the beautiful stamp and sentiment.

This is a bit more of what going for with the pencil crayons, since markers are no longer an option.   Had lots of fun and of course did it backwards, doing the finished layer then matching up.  Thanks goodness for the Gina K stock still living here.

I took the Salty Ocean first, then moved to Peacock feathers, then on to the Spiced Marmalade, and Twisted Citron.  

Next came my Tim Holts stamping platform.   That is the absolute best because of being able to use my clear and foam stamps with one thing and no fussing about to make it work.

The floral stamp is a new one  from Magenta, and the sentiment from Gina K's old set Springtime Silhouettes.
These were stamped with Gina K black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  This is where the platform came into play with two different type stamps.  Gotta love it.

Stock:  Gina K lemon and black
For colouring etc, my usual cougar
Inks:  Tim Holtz,  Gina K
Embossing powder:  CTMH clear detail
Pearls:  David Tutera 

The inside is done with the black layer and sponged layer to match waiting for whatever.

Have a good one and thanks for stopping by

So so lovely to see you making cards again. Love the scene you created here with the oxide inks - gotta love them. Gina has some lovely older stamps and this is a goodie. Gorgeous floral stamp.
