Field Flowers

Hello again, and welcome to my two technique card using "heat embossing" and creating a background using an acrylic block ("acrylic block stamped background") or in my case SU Clear Mount blocks.  I am casing myself on this card and you can see the one I did before here using a different stamp set. And, you will be seeing another one cased from this one at sometime in the near future!  I am loving this technique of acrylic stamped background!  One thing I can say is they turn out differently each time.

The challenge this week for SULateNightStampers was to do a "Thinking of you" card with a heard you are "blue" aspect to it.  That means there needs to be some blue in your card!  So as you can see, I add a little blue by stamping the background in Marina Mist with a little touch of Island Indigo around the edges.  I also stamped the top flower on Whisper White card stock, cut it out and popped it up to give a little more dimension to the card!  Very simple, but nice.  The stems and leaves are embossed using the Wild Wassabi embossing powder!
