I have been trying to re-visit some of my favorite supplies that haven't gotten enough love from me. This card is made with a fabulous background stamp by BRUTUS MONROE.
I just love the pattern on this stamp, so I wanted to really let it shine on its own. I grabbed some black cardstock from CANVAS CORP, embossed the image in PENNY EMBOSSING POWDER, and then colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.
After I had my coloring done, most of the card was already finished. I did add another strip of the same black cardstock to the left side, which I ran my EMBOSSING INK along the side and embossed again. This just gave a little more of a defined edge to the stamped pattern.
I then stamped and embossed a sentiment on the side. The floral panel is popped up on some kids craft foam, as well.
Brutus Monroe's embossing powders have quickly become my absolute favorites. They have no wax fillers, so they shine so nicely! Of course, the black background really makes it stand out, too!
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you love the card and will take the time to check out a few of the products I used!
