Today I leave you with my final card of the blog hop.  This one also utilized one of the backgrounds I made during my demo.  The people watching wanted to see what would happen if we embossed a background (Cover a Card Rolling Waves) in black over some Pan Pastel.  I thought it was a great idea and was really pleased with the resulting pattern.

On top of my background, I added stamps from the new Flower Vases clear set as well as the coordinating Flower Vases dies.  The sentiment also comes from the same set.  I stamped everything using the new Impression Obsession black ink and then colored everything with Copic markers.  Yes, you can use Copic markers with the new ink!

Don't forget to visit the other designers to see what they created for the last day of the hop!

That crazy background would scare me to use but you have designed this card to handle the busy pattern. I so love this project. Thank you for inspiring me to work outside my comfort zone

Beautiful card! I love the background! Trying the black ink on the blue pan pastels was a great idea! I also love the vase. It reminds me of one my grandmother owned -- but yours is even prettier! Your flowers are beautifully colored and being layered on the white circle, they don't get lost against the background. Beautiful colors!
