I Brake for Mums

Hi, Braker Fans. I’m back with another I Brake for Stamps Tuesday DT project. I know it’s almost Wednesday. I got so busy at work early this morning that I didn’t have time to post my card. But never fear, my card is here. This week I used a gorgeous stamp from the “Asian Full Set - Large Mum.” I love stamps like these because you can use some cool techniques with them as I'm about to demonstrate.
I started with pumpkin Bazzill cardstock for my card base and added a panel of white cardstock sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist. I used water color paper for my Mum randomly covered with Wild Honey and Peeled Paint Distress ink using my Ranger ink sponges. Then I sprayed the stamp with Iridescent Glimmer Mist before stamping it on the paper. This gives the image a shimmery water color effect. Then I distressed the edges of the panel with Peeled Paint before I attached it to the card.
My sentiment was stamped with Wild Honey and Peeled Paint Distress ink. The paper flowers were sprayed with Lily Pad and Gold Glimmer Mist and I added a few pearls and gems. This shot shows a bit of the shimmer from the Glimmer Mist.

Supplies:
Stamps – Large Mum, IBFS; Sentiment, Hero Arts
Cardstock – Bazzill, The Paper Company
Distress Ink – Ranger
Pearls/Gems – Hero Arts
Flowers – Hero Arts
