I have created 2 cards for this release.
I started by using the stamp set to stamp out my images using Sweet Dreams Mini ink cube set https://shrsl.com/3af3y and warm grey inks. I die cut the images using the coordinating dies in the kit, popped them up with dimensional foam tape and adhered the floral arrangement to my card panel. I matted the card using silver cardstock from my stash. The sentiment from the stamp set was stamped on the same silver cardstock, cut out and adhered with foam tape. Some small irridescent rhinestones from my stash finished the card nicely.
Here is a closer look at my background. It was created by ink blending colours from the Warm Grey Mini Ink Cube set https://shrsl.com/3af3t. I started in one corner and slowly worked my way down the panel, adding darker shades at one end to create an ombre effect. I then took teal caves and jet black ink and splattered it over the card panel. For a bit of shimmer, I added more splatters with sterling silver metallic paint from the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan set https://shrsl.com/3af3x and left the panel to dry for about 30 minutes.
I used the embossing folder from the kit and embossed some watercolor cardstock. I then coloured the raised parts of the image with colours from the Metallic Watercolour 14 pan set https://shrsl.com/3af3x
A sentiment from the stamp set and some pearl embellishments from my stash finished off the card.
