A Colorful Hello! :)

Hi Everyone,
This is Hussena here to share with you a card I have made as an inspiration for our current theme which is 'Stamping'.....For my card first I have stamped my card base with Hero Arts Flourishes stamp using Versamark embossing ink ...And heat embossed it using Ranger Super fine clear embossing powder...After I heat set it I went a little crazy with Distress inks...And colored the background using them....Distress inks are water- based /dye inks and they have very vibrant colors and they retain the vibrancy even after they dry unlike other dye inks.....So when I distressed my card base using Mustard Seed,Tumbled glass ,Shabby Shutters ,Scattered Straw  the colors not only blended into each other but helped to make this very colorful background...I have then stamped some flowers & leaves & colored the flowers using Fired brick & the centre using Mustard Seed & Ripe Persimmon distress inks and the leaves with Shabby Shutters & Mustard seed.....I have used the Ranger Ink blending tool & foams to color in the flowers & leaves & then fussy -cut them & popped them on dimension...You will find all these supplies in our very own Crafter's Corner' shop :)...
