Hmm...Quite Bright!

Hello and thanks for popping in,  I've just bought a couple of Wendy Vecchi stencils, so of course I had to have a little play, I've used Checkmate with  Rangers Transparent Gloss paste.  When dry I spritzed with Dylusions Dirty Martini, this is the first time I've used this - quite bright for me.
I let it soak into the card  in places and love how it's seeped under the embossing in places. I stamped some script with Frayed burlap DI before spritzing with Vintage photo and then when that was dry some Dylusions White Linen. The flowers were made with Tattered florals using a pink cardstock and then tinted with Aged mahogany DI.

I am entering this at:
  Mixed Media Mojo - Flowers
  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Flower Power
  The Sisterhood of Crafters - No Designer Papers
  Simon Says Work it Wednesday - Flowers

I'm off to do some blog visiting myself now, so thanks for visiting,
Avril xx

I'm not familiar with the materials you've used but from the sounds of it you've used a paste with a kind of 'embossing resist' ability. I think the green color looks fantastic, so right for spring and summer and I love the whole design.
