Fashionable Stamping & Garden Makeover

Playing with heat embossing, distressed oxides and stamping.
I stamped my Fly-Fly flowers stamp from Rubber Dance,
 with versamark stamp pad,
onto a background designed with the D/O inks, then
heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Fussy cut my stamp and double mounted onto my background.
Then I stamped the same stamp in the misti with the D/O and fussy cut
part of it out and double mounted onto the heat embossed stamp.
Most of my techniques have come together from a learning process from
Karen's blog...thanks Karen.xx

Fabulous card, so very summery. A great design. Love the fly-fly image. Annie your garden is wonderful. Are you growing bananas? I would love to stroll around your garden. It looks like an oasis. We had a beautiful warm sunny day so I was in my garden but nothing like yours (unfortunately) I spent the afternoon pulling out stinging nettles (sigh)

I love how you've used the oxide inks, Annie, with the embossing. What a beautiful design and wonderful use of the inspiration. It is indeed a warn sunny day here in UK, after what has been quite a few weeks of cooler, wet weather. x
