I still need some tropical vibes so I am continuing with the Humming Along stamp set and the gorgeous hibiscus flower. I don't want to jinx it but I think the snow is beginning to melt! There is a lot of snow to melt, so we may be dealing with sloppy roads and sidewalks for a while.
I embossed the hibiscus in white embossing powder and then did some coloring with an Aqua Painter and Calypso Coral, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight ink refills. The fun sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. I was playing around with the layout and felt like it needed something. The Subtle embossing folder to the rescue! I think that embossing folder goes with just about everything and is a must have. The lovely Calypso Coral ribbon was a Sale-A-Bration offering that was so loved it sold out.
Do you see the stitched scallop framing the hibiscus? That lovely border was created using a die from the Be Mine Stitched framelits. It is hard to see in the Occasions catalog. I will say that because of this die I had to purchase the Be Mine Stitched Framelit dies.
