Peony Posey Card

Hi All

I wanted to share what I made with the Peony Posey Indigoblu stamp image I coloured on the train the other day and here it is...

I wanted a sentiment on the image but didn't want to cover too much of the image so I used parchment paper. I stamped the Indigoblu sentiment (free from a Simply Cards & Papercraft mag) with Versamark ink but then found the ink stayed wet even after using the heat craft tool. Thinking I had to throw the parchment away I decided to try the heat emboss technique. I used clear embossing powder on top and it came out ok :)

I applied small dots of glue on each corner and waited for a few minutes until they were tacky before sticking the parchment on, this way the glue wouldn't spread too much underneath. I matt and layered on kraft card before embellishing with the bow, natural grass and tiny butterflies (off cuts from Tonic Studios border punch).

I am entering this card to the following challenges:
