Live Laugh Love

Its zigs again, I needed a card quickly. A light upbeat card and decided to use this white embossed background stamp image which I had made previously. There were a couple of areas the embossing didnt take properly but I was able to cut out my die cut over the worst of the area.

I love this multimedia paper I have been using, the zigs work perfectly on it (Thank you so much for that suggestion Loll) and it doesn't matter how much water I add it handles it totally. I used lots of zigs for this, each time just drawing along the edge of the white embossing in one stroke till all the flower was done then came back with a brush with plenty of water. If it got too wet I just soaked some of the water up with paper towel, waited till the image was dry then added more if I wanted.

Each flower is a different colour even though the bottom two flowers look the same colour they aren't. I had no room left for my greens, blues  greys,and browns and even had to miss some of my other ranges of colours used. Just not enough room but so easy and looks so good.
Love this with the white embossing.

I die cut the sentiment in the background piece and with gold cardstock. Put all the little bits and pieces back before adding theology to cut down on glue marks that I still managed to get on my gold die cut boo hoo. Finished off with some clear gems that look more like water drops.
