I created this card for the Tuesday Trigger- A Painterly Palette challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Using the heat-resist technique to make the circles, I stamped different doily images with Versamark watermark ink and then heat-embossed with white embossing powder onto white cardstock. Then I rubbed pigment ink pads over the top of the heat-resist doilies. I gently rubbed the ink off the embossing leaving behind my white embossing lines. I only used three colors of ink but applied more or less ink to some of the circles to create different shades. Next, I punched 1.25" and 1.50" centers from the doilies. Adhering a few circles with foam tape, I used the darker doilies at the bottom and the smaller circles in the back to give depth and movement to the card.
I also used heat-resist on the sentiment tag. I stamped on white cardstock here as well. Then, I applied the ink, trimmed and matted the sentiment tag with white cardstock.
That gorgeous background cardstock comes from the Chickadee Mesange Pajaro stack from DCWV.
