Birthday Card - Thinking Inking

Supplies:  Jillibean Soup Kraft card blank, PTI Blooming Button Bits 
- flower, leaves and sentiment.  Colorbox Pigment Ink in Eggplant, Versacolor ink - Sage, 
Clear embossing powder, doodlebug gems and vintage white buttons from Nancy 

Okay... I have been cleaning my house all morning and have taken a quick break!!!  Have guests arriving from out of town tomorrow... so have to get the place ship shape.  

I stamped the flower in eggplant, leaves in sage then coated in clear ep - used my heat tool and then put it straight back into the ep, did several layers to get a high shine/thick layer of embossing on the flowers and on the leaves.  This is what Jennifer McGuire did with her roses on this week's thinking inking too.  I cut out and adhered to a kraft card blank.  Added stitching with emboidery floss to the wonderful vintage buttons that Nancy sent me (Thank you Nancy) and added gems to one card.

Created the box around the card with a eggplant coloured gel pen.  Thanks so much for peeking.. have to go back to the cleaning!

Check out the wonderful 2peas class - Thinking Inking right here for amazing inspiration from Jennifer McGuire.  Have a fun day!

This is really lovely. Wish I did clean and simple cards so well. Love the colour choices.

Gotta love Jennifer's videos. This new series is so inspirational.
