The first is a floral card featuring a pretty stylised fuchsia image from Chocolate Baroque called Hanging Flowers which I coloured with Brushos by sprinkling Scarlet and Orange on the flower area and then Leaf Green and Emerald Green around the areas where the leaves are and then spritzed.
I started by stamping the image on to the piece of white card with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed using WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. I then used the Brushos as described above and moved them around a bit more with a waterbrush and added more colour with the brush until I was happy with the result. I then die cut using a Stitched Square die from The Works and cut this piece with two hexagon dies using a set from XCut, and then put a piece of craft foam behind the central piece to lift it up.
Here is a closer view so that you can see the hexagonal pieces with the centre raised up on foam.Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - No. 184 All About Holidays.
I finished by adding it to a 6" square white base card and then stamped the sentiment using Versamark and heat embossed with WOW Silver Metallic EP.

The second card is made with the same small hexagon making a patchwork. I used some glossy card and alcohol inks - Indigo, Pool and Stonewashed. I then decided to use a snowflake stamp from Chocolate Baroque called Snowflake Shadow over the top and stamped using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with WOW Silver Metallic EP.
I die cut the pieces and put them back together on to a piece of white card and then mounted that on to another slightly larger piece of white card before adhering it to a 7" x 5" white base card (side opening). I then added the sentiment again using the WOW Silver Metallic EP.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you for taking a look today and I hope to see you again soon.
