Bright & White

*This is the FINAL post of the January promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*

Good morning, I hope you're all having a great weekend. Thanks for all the comments for the last two weeks, make sure you don't forget to leave your comment on this post.
I've got a very bright card to show you today...................

The background is Split Pea & Boysenberry Versacolor inks directly applied to smooth white card stock. I gave it a quick dry with my heat tool, then rubbed an anti-static pad over it. I laid the mini
TCW Tiny Circles stencil on top, randomly applied embossing ink through it with a piece of
Cut & Dry foam, removed the stencil & heat set the card with bright white embossing powder.
I cut an scalloped out of white card with a Spellbinders die, dry embossed it with the Crafts Too
Dots 5x5 folder & applied tiny amounts of silver paint to the raised areas with my finger.
(Lots of embossing folders in the MEGA SALE)
The Hobby Art sunflower was stamped onto white card with Onyx Black Versafine & heat set with clear embossing powder. I used Boysenberry mixed with water to colour the centre - I drew out some of the colour from the centre with a water brush to colour the petals just a little. When the centre was dry I rubbed a tiny amount of Diamond Sparkle Medium over it, followed by Glossy Accents........
The sentiment is from Anna's Collection - Just For You & I used Anna Marie Designs
 plain Citrine card & a piece of Core'dinations card for the matting & layering...............
