Floral Brocade


Hi everyone!!  It's two nights before Thanksgiving and I just had to get some ink on my fingers!! :):)
Today I wanted to use the Floral Brocade stamp CG187 by Hero Arts.                               
In the top picture, the background was stamped with Hero Arts Just Find Me CL434 Friend sentiment in HA shadow ink in soft sand on ivory cardstock. Purple and light green paper are from Bazzill Basics. The ribbon and pearls are from Michaels. The flowers were shaded with scattered straw distress ink and VersaMagic Chalk ink in Spring Pansy. The vines were shaded with the same, but I also added VersaMagic in Aloe Vera.
For the bottom card, the same ivory cardstock.  The background stamp is Papertrey Ink text style in HA soft brown shadow ink. The brown and light green papers are Bazzill. The inks used to shade the floral brocade are distress inks scattered straw and victorian velvet, and versa magic aloe vera. Ribbon and gems are from Michaels. Both cards were distressed with HA soft sand shadow ink.
Thanks for taking the time to peek!
Hope everyone enjoys their thanksgiving!!!

I love how you got such a soft look from the distress inks! I haven't tried chalk inks yet, I'm kinda scared about how to use them lol! Beautiful cards.
