Make My Monday #42

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another week. 

So today the challenge at Make My Monday this week is WHITE EMBOSSING, if you fancy joining in and seeing what the rest of the design team has come up with please do pop over, using the link above or on my side bar.  Everyone is welcome to join in, we set a new challenge every 2 weeks. 

I decided to go with bright vibrant flowers against a black background.  First i stamped and heat embossed my flowers in white onto black cardstock.  I then to make the colours pop more painted them with white gesso, once dry i used pebeo acrylic paints in hot pink and yellow.  Yellow enamel drop centres.  I shaded around the edge of each flower with a white pencil and white gel pen doodled accents.

I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a die cut rectangle and mounted on foam to finish. 5x5" Card size.
