Hello everyone! Waffle Flower friend Sveta Fotinia is sharing with us today! Watch-It-Wednesday-square Hello everyone! Today I'm honored to share a card and a video on Waffle Flower blog. In the last few months,  me, my husband and our pretty cat have been waiting on the reconstruction of our apartment to finish. We can't wait to move in and have a real party with our friends. I want to make some invitations and Potted Stamp Set is perfect for this occasion. Especially that I plan to decorate my new home with lots of succulents! wiw-guest-sveta-1 I blended a circular background using distress ink and then stamped the succulents on top with Stazon ink. You can also use heat embossing for this technique. You just need your image to be water-proof. As you may have known that distress ink can be reactivated by water, I used water to lighten up selected petals to add contrast to the succulents. I also added some shimmer to the "bleached" areas using a Wink of Stella brush. This is a super fun way to color. wiw-guest-sveta-3 I used white embossing powder on black cardstock for my sentiment. I trimmed the ends of the sentiment strip to make it look like a pointing arrow for added movement on the card. Close to the end of the video, I added invitation text inside with our new address. That's it! wiw-guest-sveta-2
