Dogwood day

Today, being a hot one, and still unwell,  is an experimental day for me.
I found an appropriate stencil for my card, embossed it in 
the Hot Shot with special mats.  Then used TH distressed inks
for the backgrounds and stenciled areas.
[tutorial can be found HERE]
My flower was stamped by a gorgeous stamp I have had for a while 
from Stamplorations then coloured with polychromo pencils. It was
then mounted onto my background

Heat embossed part of a stamped sentiment, also from Stamplorations, onto
vellum, die cut and stamped more sentiments.


Challenge:
Sweet Stampin....Happy BIrthday



There is a DT call for a new challenge blog commencing on 
January 1st 2017....details found HERE

Lovely inkiness Annie - but can you explain the concept of "hot" ? We have had solid rain for days and in-between frosty nights so leads for pretty bad driving experiences.

Feel better soon.
