Blooming Flowers Blog Hop

Welcome to the 

Today's hop is sponsored by Card A Day Challenge Blog

and the prize package you could win 

To win just comment on the blogs in the hop today.  That's it! It's that simple.

We would also appreciate you following the blogs too.

Now on with the hop.

You should have arrived here from Anna's blog!!!

I pulled out my Heartfelt Creations stamps and matching Spellbinders dies to create some wonderful layered flowers.  I stamped with Versamark and embossed with Ranger silver pearl powder on white paper.  Then I used Quick Quotes chalking inks to color the flowers.  Before I assembled them I squirted them with a bit of water and on the back with a stylus I distressed them.  Heartfelt Creations teaches this technique in their classes.  I am sure you can find a tutorial on their site.  Finally, I popped up the layers with pop dots.
