Embossing Paste Reminder for CAS Mix Up

Hello friends.

It's the 15th of the month and a reminder that there's still time to enter at
CAS Mix Up

Here's some more inspiration for you.

The challenge is

I've used stamping, embossing paste through a stencil, Copic marker coloring, die cuts and vellum.

I applied some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste through part of  my
favorite stencil.  I'm sorry it's retired, but I think Tim Holtz has a similar one.

While it was drying, I stamped this graceful flower from a NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff)
and colored it with Copic Sketch Markers.

The curve of the flower made me think of a circle, so I die cut it with a circle die 
and to be a little different, I cut it straight on one side.

I also die cut a larger circle from vellum to frame it a bit.

I added some dots with a white gel pen to give the flower a little more interest.

And it was done.

The Design Team and both of our Guest Designers have some 
wonderful inspiration pieces to show you.

Hope to see you in the gallery!

This fits at Penny Black and More

Absolutely Gorgeous main flower image my friend. I LOVE the flow you achieved with your partial circle die cut. Your background stenciling with embossing paste reminds me of rain drops. A beautiful added texture. TFS Bonnie. Hugs..

Such a graceful and unique and beautiful card! Love the circles partially cut off with that curved stamp and the one circle done in vellum. Just so feminine and soft looking. Plus the embossing paste on that choice of EF....ahhhh. Gonna have to start referring to you as the "Design Queen"!

I like that weathered wood look that the stencil gave your card. That flower is cool too. It reminds me of that style whose name eludes me but is very cool.
