The design team made all their cards featuring a color blending techinque. I used Ranger distress inks to create the warm red, orange, yellow background for my butterfly and thistle. First I stamped the image in Versamark Ink, and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I applied the distress inks one at a time, starting with the lightest in the center, and the darker on the outer edges.
To add a little sparkle I used a Sakura Quickie Glue pen, drew some dots, allowed the glue to dry and then applied gold perfect pearls.
