Lilies of the Valley and Gingham

This card started with a piece of polished stone paper that I brought with me from home. Basically you start with white glossy paper, and pounce a mixture of reinkers, glycerin and alcohol onto it. It gives a marblized appearance as the alcohol dries out. I think this was only 1 ink, a pink. I stamped the Silhouette Bells over it in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it in white, then I trimmed it, framed it in white and a raspberry gingham paper, and centered that onto my white notecard. The leaves and stems are colored in with green marker. Then just added the sentiment.

Supplies: CG165 Silhouette Bells, CL272 All Occasion Messages, white and glossy white cardstock, raspberry gingham printed paper, pink reinker, VersaFine Onyx Black and VersaMark inks, white embossing powder
