Look! No Distress Inks!
I've loved the effect of ink over clear embossing since I first discovered it - but this is the first time I've used it in a card (rather than just on a random piece of paper!).
The base of the card is a piece of white card. I stamped the flower image with Versa Mark and then embossed with a clear embossing powder.
I then covered the page with Big & Juicy Hydrangea ink using a brayer. (Holy messy fingers batman! Ink everywhere! But I liked the effect.) I wiped the ink off of the embossed area and was left wit h the lovely white image.
I then cut three small squares of white card and stamped the same flower image on to each. I glued these onto the base of the card with some Pinflair glue.
I put the whole thing onto a 5x7 white gloss card.
