Purple Iris

I have been wanting to try one of the sketches on Card Positioning Systems for awhile. This weeks sketch (CPS 116) looked fun so I gave it a go. This is what I came up with. I used the iris stamp from elegant flowers and the lilac branch from botanical dreams both from Gina K Designs.
I started by coloring the irises with copic markers, at this point I decided that I wanted to heat emboss with clear embossing powder. This can be somewhat difficult with copics. I very carefully inked the iris with a versamark pen so as not to smear the colors and then embossed with clear powder. I then started sponging first with bashful blue in the center, and working my way out to the edges I sponged with almost amethyst, lavender lace and finally with elegant eggplant. For the back layer I sponged with lavender lace and the stamped with elegant eggplant that I had stamped off first. The card stock colors are lavender lace and elegant eggplant. Thank you for stopping by.
