MFP New Release Happy Pansies & Blog Hop!

Hello, I made this with the new 'Happy Pansies' set available now at Mark's Finest Papers! I stamped with versamark onto watercolour paper twice, and embossed with gold.

I picked up the ink from the lids of the stamp pads using a waterbrush, and coloured in the image. I cut two of the flowers out and bent them up for dimension.

The cardbase is rich razzleberry with a layer of gold and then dp. The main image was cut with the octagon nesties. I finished it off with some gold brads.

This card is also for the Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT128, with the destination station is Katie, you can read about her and find all the info you need here!

Today is DAY 2 of the MFP Blog Hop, I'm not participating today, but here's all the info!
