This is for challenge IC84 found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=268521
Here is the recipe: First, stamped Best Blossom leaves with Always Artichoke on River Rock CS, heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Second, stamped large flowers and berries with Purely Pomegranate and heat embossed with clear EP. Third, stamped small flowers with Chocolate Chip and heat emossed with clear EP. Fourth Stamped Baroque Swirls and Sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with clear EP. Fifth, stamped partical image of square Baroque Motifs around edge of CS with Always Artichoke and heat embossed with clear EP. Sixth, brayered over entire CS with Mellow Moss and wiped ink off of embossed images with a paper towel. Seventh, sponged Always Artichoke around outer edge and rubbed some over sentiment so it would stand out better. Lastly, I highlighted flowers with a white gel pen and matted with Always Artichoke and River Rock CS's. Helpful note: When heat embossing images over images you want to start with the foreground and work towards the background. TFL
