The Flower Challenge #30 'Anything Goes'

Hi there friends, Wow it's March did that happen? So love Springtime .... I hope your weather is behaving itself too.

Anyway I am here to share another flowery card and it's 'Anything Goes' over at 'The Flower Challenge' this month. So an easy peasy one again ;)

I decided to use an old technique I don't use often enough these days and that's the 'Faux Letterpress' technique'....or the Belleek technique as I have known it called.

I just love the look it gives too, I used this newish embossing folder as it's a deep one and shows off this technique quite well I think. See HERE for details of how to do the 'Faux Letterpress' technique.

(This TH embossing folder gives a really deep impression too, great with this particular technique!)

Ok come and have a closer look and of course enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

Flower Challenge, Anything Goes

Smooth White card
TH Botanical E/F
Penny Black Love die 
Hero Arts Shadow ink Bubblegum
After making my card base I cut another top layer for my card. I inked up the flat side of my E/F and added my card topper and then ran it through my machine. Then I used my die cut sentiment and cut three layers and stuck them together. I added it all to my card base and my card was complete.

 Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge.
You have until the 25th March to enter.

Oh, I love the faux letterpress look, Vivien! And the white die cut sentiment is gorgeous slightly camouflaging into the white florals of the embossing folder!
