I haven't inked the Accented Blooms set in a while. It is now on the Retiring Products list, which makes me want to use it all the time!
The image was stamped with Versamark ink on Shimmery White cardstock and heat embossed using white embossing powder. I use Shimmery White cardstock or Fluid 100 Watercolor paper when I color using an Aqua Painter and ink refills. Why? Because the water doesn't absorb as quickly as it does on Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock, enabling me to move the color around. I used Melon Mambo, Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Gorgeous Grape ink refills to color the image. The sentiment was inked using Versamark on Melon Mambo cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder and then punched out using the Tailored Tag punch.
To finish the card I layered the image on Melon Mambo and then on to a Whisper White layer that was embossed using the gorgeous Parisian Flourish 3D folder. If you like texture and beautiful backgrounds this folder is a must have. I cut out some butterflies using the Butterfly Beauty dies and added a little rhinestone bling to each butterfly.
