Happy Thursday everyone!  Today's card has a 4th of July theme to it, but it could be used for a any summer occasion.  I used the new Gracious Floral Stamp for my stamped image to create this card.

I began by ink blending Distress Oxide Inks on a white cardstock panel.  


Next, I spattered the panel with plain water and used my heat tool to dry it completely.

I stamped my image with Black pigment ink, sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and used a heat tool to melt the embossing powder.

I used a paint brush and water to paint in the flowers and remove some of the distress ink.  


Once I was happy with the results I dried the panel with my heat tool.  

I used a white colored pencil to add some highlights to the stamped image and lightly spattered it with white ink. 


I mounted the card panel to a black cardstock mat and adhered it to a white card base.

I die cut the word celebrate from white cardstock and the shadow from black cardstock.  I glued the white die cut word to the shadow die cut and adhered it to the card.


To finish the card, I added some Clear Fairy Drops to the background and Black Nuvo Drops to the flower center.  That's it for today!  

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
