Warmest Wishes

Another card for the monthly challenge on the Hero Arts Blog, Home and Mother's Day.  I decided to try using the embossed layered resist technique with my Silhouette Vase stamp one more time.  Practice makes perfect.  Right?  I  used a very muted color pallet this time and only two distress inks.
I am happy with the way it turned out.


The papers are from Bazzill.  The Silhouette Vase stamp was embossed with clear embossing powder and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks,  Tattered Rose and Pumice Stone.  The sentiment is actually from Holiday Sayings.  It works perfectly and you would never know that it came from a Christmas set.   It was inked with Versamark, Smokey Gray.  One could easily personalize this greeting inside.  The three stone etchings are from the free Hero Arts digital kit.  I sized and recolored them in Photoshop.  Lastly added Hero Arts pearls.
