Hey there everyone, I’m back from Arkansas. Thank you Linda Carson for hosting me while I was there. Also thank you to the wonderful ladies that attended my workshops. I had a great time.
I drove 12 hours to reach Arkansas. Here are a few sites that I seen along the way. A couple of these where taken as I was doing 70 miles an hour down the Inter State, lol. Don’t do this!
Maramec Springs Park in Missouri
Open Road . . . . . . . . .
I took lots and lots of pictures, but I will not bore you with them. Let’s get on to more important stuff like the Blog Candy winner. . . .

Stamped Flourish 5 times with Versamark only on a 3.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock. Heat embossed embossed the images using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Stamped the flowers twice by first loading the stamp with Versamark and then Always Artichoke ink before stamping.
Heat embossed the flower images using clear embossing powder and a heat gun. Colored the stems and leaves with an Old Olive marker.
Colored the flowers in with a Blush Blossom marker.
Added Rose Red marker to the flowers.
Went over the flowers again with the Blush Blossom marker to blend the two colors together.
Colored over the flowers, leaves and stems with a Versamark marker and then heat embossed the images using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Brayered Baja Breeze ink on the card stock at an angle.
Brayered Not Quite Navy ink on the card stock at an angle, not covering the Baja Breeze ink entirely.
Wiped the ink off of my embossed images with an old cotton cloth.
Extended my flower stem with an Old Olive Marker.
Assembled card front and added a white punched Photo Corner, brads and pierced along each side of my white panel using a piercing tool and Stampin’ Up Mat Pack.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day be full of sweet smelling blossoms!
