PPA 156, and a new technique



Blue is my all time favorite color, so this was more fun then usual for me. Also, I tried something new, and it has lots of possibilities.  
I used Whisper White for my base card and then Marina Mist and on top Bashfull blue.
Aren't they beautiful colors? And so springy.
I used the French Script background stamp in Bashful Blue, to create a subtle effect on the CS, then ran it through the Lacy Brocade embossing folder (Holiday and Spring cattys).  
Any embossing folder will do, but a more open one looks better for this.   After embossing I inked up my brayer with my white pad and rolled across the raised embossing.
I finished off with a few green branches and used a stamp from the Four Frames set, punching it out with the Decorative label punch and stamping in the sentiment from Blooming with Kindness..

Here is a close up so you can see it better, it's a little hard to see here.
I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by.
