Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes

Crafter's Companion is sponsoring Party Time Tuesday for the February Anything Goes Challenge. I have the pleasure of participating as a Guest Designer.

My design features images from Stamp-It Australia EZMount Stamp Set Spring - Dreamy Daisies.  

I inked up the flower image with a Memento LUXE Ink Pad tuxedo black, stamped onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstocksprinkled emboss powder and heat set.  I added color with Spectrum Noir Ink Refills CT1, CT3, GB6 and a paintbrush - the colors are so pretty and rich.  I worked in one area at a time filling in color, cleaning my brush with alcohol in-between colors.

NOTE: the ink will dry fast so it's best to work in one area at a time. 
TIP: If you need to lighten an area or if you get ink someplace you don't want it, use the Spectrum Noir Marker Blender.  

The base card is Shimmering Cards yellow pearl.  I stamped images randomly using an India ink pad. I layered the focal image over Shimmering Cardstock black pearl and used The Ultimate Tool to make that perfect little bow. The sentiment is embossed to make it really pop.
