Hi everyone! Has anyone seen flowers yet this Spring? I am still experiencing all my flowers in greeting card format so, but I am hoping to see some blooms soon!
To make this card, I used a faus batik technique where I embossed the hydrangea on mulberry paper with clear powder. I then sprayed the paper with purple inks and removed the embossing powder with a hot iron. When I put white paper behind the mulberry paper, it really made the flowers pop. To finish the card, I added a saying onto a die cut banner.

On another note, if you are a fan of Impression Obsession, I am starting a new monthly Cover a Card Mini class at Angela's Happy Stamper in Herndon, VA. Each month will be a different technique, and we will make one full card as well as two backgrounds using the same coloring technique. The first class is this Saturday, March 21 from 5- 6:30pm.
The first Cover a Card technique we will be covering is embossing. Pretty much everyone knows how to emboss, but I will have tips and ideas of different ways to incorporate embossing powders with Cover a Card backgrounds. This is the card we will be making:
Hope to see you then!
