This next card uses the "Friends Never Fade" set from the new IBC and features several of the new (and retuning) colors: Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Pacific Point. The sentiment was so fun to do! I used my sponge daubers to create a blend of all my colors then stamped the image on top in Basic Black. This is a great image to use this technique on!
The card featured two of the new in-colors: Blushing Bride and Pear Pizazz. We used the exclusive Stampin' Up embossing folder: Elegant Bouquet and ran a piece of vellum card stock through the Big Shot. Then, we stamped the hydrangea and it's loose blooms in the un-embossed area. After giving it a few minutes to dry, we turned the vellum over and used markers and blender pens to color in the flowers and stem. We stamped a background on the Blushing Bride card stock before adhering the vellum on top of it. We used the new Smooch Illuminate Top Coat Accent Ink on the raised portion of the embossed image to finish off the card front.
