Marble and flowers!

Hi there! Emily Midgett here with a guest post during this holiday weekend. Have you heard of The Stamp Market? They're a relatively new company, and they have some suuuuper cute designs, and Vanessa just so happens to carry them in her shop! I just love how many great brands she carries in her store. The Marble background stamp is so clever and so very unique that I just couldn't resist it! Combining it with flowers.... well, it's like a pretty bouquet sitting on a beautiful marble countertop.... hopefully haha! 

To start, I stamped the Marble background stamp on a piece of A2 sized magenta card stock using Altenew's Purple Wine ink and my MISTI. After I had inked it up to my satisfaction with the Purple Wine ink, I dabbed some Delicata Silver on my Marble background stamp and added a few veins of silver to my marbled panel. I love that you can add little details like that with your MISTI because you can ensure that you're re-stamping in exactly the same spot!

Next, I stamped some of the blooms from Feeling Floral onto some white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with my Copics in shades of pink and golden yellow. I know, I know, it's totally smack dab in the middle of Christmas Crafting, but.... Sometimes I need some pretty sunshine-y colors amidst all of the red and green and silver and gold! I fussy cut all of the flowers, then turned to the sentiment. 

For the greeting, I used The Stamp Market's You stamp and die bundle cut from some silver glitter card stock and silver heat embossed on a strip of white card stock I arranged all of the flowers in the corner of the marbled panel, then adhered them with dimensional adhesive and added my greeting over the top. The final touch was to add some Sunshine Glow sequins from my stash to fill out some bare spots in the bouquet. 

Well, that's all for me today! I hope you had a marvelous Thanksgiving and are enjoying your holiday shopping! Thanks so much for having me back as a guest!
