Hey there!! Popping in with a card for the current Essentials by Ellen Mix it Up challenge. This month we get to mix up our EE products with MFT products... YAY!! I have been wanting to ink up the MFT mini stamp set grateful ever since I got it (about a month ago!!). I knew it would work well with the EE Mondo Hydrangea since both are rather large. I stamped the hydrangea on watercolor paper with watermark ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Once that was done I watercolored the hydrangea with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I stamped the little single flower three times, heat embossed in gold and watercolored them. When they were dry I die cut them with the matching die. I stamped the word on vellum and heat embossed it in gold then trimmed it out. The little for you is part of a sentiment that is found in the MFT Geometric Leaves stamp set. That was embossed in white and trimmed down. I layered everything up and adhered to a kraft cardstock base that I wrapped with a bit of gold twine. My layout is based on the current CTS sketch so I will be adding this to their gallery, as well.
Hope you have a wonderful day! We are having rain mixed with snow so a perfect day to stay inside and craft!!
