Another Floral Fusion!!

Hello there :0)

I'm back today and snubbing this horrible wet wintery weather with a taste of Summer Florals in the form of a hanging basket of pretty colours :0)

Yes it's those elusive Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals again teamed up with the Joanna Sheen Hanging Basket die and the size match is perfect!! I've also joined the trend for embossing paste and stencils to make a textured wall behind the basket :0)

Embossing paste is a trend that's come back round during my crafting time and luckily my paste is still as good as new... the only thing that's different are the gorgeous plastic stencils available now instead of the brass kind we had to use!! I've coloured my embossing paste with a small drop of Memento Tangelo ink to give it an apricot hue.... when the paste was dry I replaced the stencil and used daubers and distress inks in Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge to give the bricks some extra depth and tone :0)
Those pretty vibrant colours transport me away from this wet gloom outside the window and I hope it injects some colour into your day too :0)
Thanks for stopping by

Jenny, you send me on a shopping spree for stencils, embossing paste, and everything needed to try this technique.

Your card looks amazing and I'm SO much looking forward to try this myself.
