Baja Marina Muse

Hi friends!  I snuck away for a little time in my studio during naptime this morning.  The color challenge on SCS today was right up my alley.. marina mist, midnight muse and baja breeze.  I added crumb cake as my neutral and the dessert option of gems.  The stamps on this card are from the new Surely Goodness set from Verve.


I stamped the solid flower in marina mist, baja breeze and midnight muse on the crumb cake layer, added some faux stitching with a paper piercer and a crumb cake marker and then spritzed the cardstock with crumb cake and baja breeze using my air art tool.

The focal flower is stamped and then cut with the coordinating Goodness Flowers Die Set.  Then I stamped it again in Versamark ink and embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder and popped up on dimensionals.  The flower centers are accented with rhinestones which I colored to match with Copic markers.  A little pleated ribbon treatment is my only other embellishment.  The baja breeze layer is stamped with the largest flower from Surely Goodness in Marina Mist and then I distressed the edges to finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fantastic day!

Wow, this is beautiful! I love those flower stamps, and your faux stitching is amazing. My favs, though, are the super heavy distressed edges and that pretty ruffled ribbon. Your cards are always amazing!
