Make It Monday #243 - Ink Blending Over Heat Embossing

Hello friends.  Danielle Flanders is hosting this weeks challenge over at Make It Monday, and showing us how beautiful ink blending can be over heat embossed images.  I blended some Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade distress inks over my heat embossed background using an old SU! stamp called Script.  And then I simply added the Cover Plate: Butterfly over the top of my blended background and came up with this:



I love the crisp clean look of the white cover plate over the blended pink and orange...definitely makes me think Spring!  I used a simple black banner with an embossed sentiment from PTI's Choose Joy and a bright pink enamel dot to finish off my card.

If you're looking for some beautiful Spring inspiration, head on over to Nichole's blog and check out Danielle's great video and beautiful card, and all the other lovely cards in the gallery...you can check it out right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)
