A lot of work went into this card, Anne, and it paid off. The colors are fabulous. The color pencils are so vibrant. I like the way you dry embossed right over part of the focal image. Lots of dimension and texture here. TFS. Daria

Inspired by Stamping A to Z's S is for…Stampers Anonymous, T is for…Tim Holtz, V is for…Versamark, and W is for…Washi Tape challenges.
Background is ledger paper from Basic Grey's “Recess” 6x6 paper pad. I edged the left side with aqua/clear striped washi tape. On the right side, I stamped a flourish from Tim Holtz's / Stampers Anonymous' CMS070 Fabulous Flourishes using VersaMark watermark ink. Then I heat embossed it using Ranger turquoise embossing powder with my Heat It craft tool (heat gun).
For the focal piece, I stamped Stampers Anonymous M2-674 (D) Dream on white cardstock using Ranger Archival Ink in jet black. I colored it in using Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. Then I die cut and dry embossed it using Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Rectangles Small.
Next, I dry embossed it with a flourish from Tim Holtz French Connection Texture Fades by Sizzix. You can see this better in the second photo. Then I edged the piece with lime/clear striped washi tape.
The matte is purple patterned paper from Basic Grey's “Kioshi” 6x6 pad (KIO-2344 Yuriko). I die cut and dry embossed it using Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large.
I wrapped Together Twine from My Mind's Eye “Lime Twist” collection around the focal panel. Then I adhered it to the scalloped matte. I added blue pearls from Hero Arts CH213 Sea Mixed Accents. Then I adhered it to the card base using foam tape for dimension.
Thanks for looking! :-)
