Trending Now

Happy Thursday!!!
Today is Trending Now day on the MCT blog. The "trend" that we are watching today is the "Bloom & Plume" trend, so floral's and/or feathers. We have three or four stamp/die sets that work perfectly with this theme. I used two of them to create my card.
 I stamped some watercolor paper with the floral stamp from the My Thoughts Are With You Stamp Set. Then I used some distress inks to watercolor the background. I made this for a friend who loves blue so I chose to use blue & green inks. Once it was finished, I used the largest rectangle from the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies to cut it out. The sentiment is from the Just Because stamp and die set. I embossed it on one of the smaller Ribbon End Banner Dies.


Paper: Papertrey Ink (Soft Stone, Black), Watercolor Paper
Ink: Distress Ink (Black Soot, Lucky Clover, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon), Versafine (Onyx Black), Versamark (Clear)
Embossing Powder: Ranger (Superfine White)
