Hibiscus

New stamp set I picked up at my Stamp store, I loved the different details in the stamps and leaves, stamped them with Versamark ink, embossed with white embossing powder onto patterned cardstock and then using my markers gave a bit of shading to the  flowers and leaves.




Fussy cut the flowers and leaves and did a little bit of shaping with the handle of my paint brush.  Put two of the die cuts together to cut out the frame and used the same die set for my sentiment piece, I used a black marker around the edges so it matched more with the frame.

I do love the pattern on those flowers and leaves! Whimsical and pretty, they look great with the frame and the paper. Still one of my favorite dies, especially as a frame. A very happy birthday card, Connie!
