Distress ink resist -technique with a twist

Hello Friends,

Here i have used a technique where I stamped and heat embossed the images from a flower stamp set, heat embossed it clear embossing powder and then coloured it with distress inks and a few sprays of water that was mixed with pearl pigment powder to add subtle shimmer.

Let it dry and once it was dry ironed off the embossing powder to give the background a matt finish.
For the sentiment i Die-cut a piece of card stock using a lable die from Itsy bitsy. Heat embossed the sentiment in pearl gold embossing powder. 

Also went around the label with vermark ink and embossed it in the same embossing powder i did for the sentiment. Besides this also heat embossed a piece of cardstock in the same gold and cut it into strips to create a border around the panel.

Being new to blogging I have made very few crafty friends but i do get inspired by many of them. Dr. Sonia is a very ta/ented crafter and she inspires me so i dedicate this card to her.
