Hello Lovelies! I hope you are ready, because we have SOOO many pretties to show you during STAMPtember®! Speaking of pretties, I think today's card may qualify in that category.
The Brilliant Coneflower Embossing Folder design is an absolute delight to color. With the help of a few blending brushes and Distress Ink, we will bring our trio of flowers to life.
You don't really have to worry about being precise with this project; we are going for a dreamy effect and a lot of softness, we want our flowers to glow!
Let's take a look at the key supplies.
