Fabulous Floating Florets

Here is project 3 of 3 from my Stampin' UP! New Catalog Open House earlier this month. This was the 'detailed' project that took some time to do - but WOW! Look at the results! This design is a "techinque" card that showcases the 'floating re-inkers' technique, along with several NEW products including: New In Colors Island Indigo and Calypso Coral, Designer Frames Embossing Folder, Ruffled Ribbon and the stamp sets "Fabulous Florets" and "Petite Pairs."

The Floating Re-Inkers technique uses Shimmer Paper (though you can't tell in the picture, you CAN tell in person!) with a line image that is heat embossed in black. Then, you spritz the embossed card stock with LOTS of water, and use the re-inker to add a few drops of ink to the image. The ink spread in the water all on it's own, and you can also use an Aquapainter to swish it around and achieve more color consistency. I then used the Paper Snips to cut out the Fabulous Florets, and mount them with Dimensionals on the cut out embossed frame (run through the Big Shot of course!).

I used the Island Indigo stamp pad to create the background for the focal image, by dragging it across the same color card stock. The whole thing came together very well, and is simply GORGEOUS! ENJOY!
