(2015 c31) Unity KOTM 7-14 Beauitful Inside and Out, Emboss Resist with M Stewart Flourish


I first stamped Martha Stewart Flourish stamps on white cardstock & heat embossed with Clear EP.  Then sponged with Tim Holtz Distress inks: Shabby Shutters, Forest Moss, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.  Then I stamped the flowers from Unity Stamp Co. from the KOTM from 7-2014 called Beautiful inside and Out  on the background with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white EP.  Next I painted inside the petals with white gesso and then colored with Tim Holtz Distress ink brushes. Last I stamped the sentiment onto  Vellum and colored the petals and leafs on the back side with Sharpie pens.
