You're The Best - Miss Ink Stamps

Welcome to some Miss Ink Stamps inspiration!  I am sharing a card for someone very special today!  Someone who is the best!

I started with the background.  I used the Mouse Flower Stencil to apply some Color Fuse Inks in a couple different greens.  I rinsed and dried the stencil before placing it back over the ink blended background and added some Ranger Gloss Translucent Texture Paste.  Then while it was wet I sprinkled just a little bit of glitter over it.. not evenly because I didn't want a totally glittered background but just some sparkle here and there and I figured whatever stuck... stuck!  I set it aside to dry.

I stamped, cut and colored all of my images from the Gardenia and Brewtiful stamp sets ahead of time and colored them... the flowers using some Copic in R000, R00, R01, and R02.   For the leaves I used YG01, YG03 and YG17.    

I cut a rectangle panel with a heart window by placing both dies in place at the same time and taping them in place with some washi.  That way I only had to run it through the Gemini once.  I added acetate to the inside of this panel and then foam tape around the heart and then as support to the rest of the panel.  I eyeballed where the panel would go and added some sequins to that area... just a few so that my stenciled part would still show through.

I colored the "XO" from the Brewtiful stamp set in an ombre style using the same colors as for the leaves of the flowers.  Then using varying thicknesses of foam tape, I added all of my pieces parts to the card and this sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments set!

I almost forgot about that sweet green ladybug up in the top right!  Isn't that so fun and cute!?  You can get those in the shop too right here and they come in a few different colors!

And that's me for today!  Well, no... I'm not going to tell you who it's!  But she's pretty special and I think she'll like it!

Thanks for stopping and hope you'll come again soon!
