|The greeting is from the Best Thoughts stamp set|
So this is my attempt. I had only seen the video once and was working from memory (always dangerous at my age!) and didn't get it quite right. However, I'm not unhappy with the result.
I used Shimmery White cardstock and sponged on random splodges of colour - Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant and Pear Pizzazz. Then I clear heat embossed the heart from Bloomin' Love. Instead of brushing with water and dabbing dry - as shown by Jennifer - I wiped the ink with some damp kitchen paper.
I layered the card then added the Botanical Builder die cuts. I think the Bloomin' Love strip looks a bit like a brocade (or grandma's curtains!) and I really like it. I used the Metal Rimmed Pearls as flower centres because I thought pearls would match with the look of brocade.
To celebrate International Women's Day, I'm giving this card to my friends at Soroptimist International of the Hills District - a very dedicated and kind group of ladies who do so much for their local community as well as for women and girls around the globe.
