And here is the result (drumroll please)...
I was downstairs when I made this so I forgot that the lettering on the bottle was actually black. I don't mind the blue so much. I used Bashful Blue with some brocade blue on the background image and Ballet Blue for the sentiment. I finally pulled out a couple of flowers from my collection and put them to good use! And I gotta tell you about that white one! It is just an ordinary flower-probably prima if I had to guess-but here's the WOW: I embossed it! And I LOVE how the embossing brings almost a plastic shiny quality to the bloom. Here is a closer look (albeit blurry I am sure):
Can you see the shine? There is a little light reflecting off the top petals.
I learned this little trick when I went to the SU Regional in Orlando a couple of weeks ago. I would have never thought to emboss a flower! You can emboss the fabric ones (like in the Pretties kit) too! They said you dont even have to use versamark..just get it wet and but some embossing powder on it!
How cool is that? I don't know what it is about these little 4x4 cards, but I am really starting to like the size...
Well, thanks for checking up on me...only 28 more days to go!
