I stamped the two main flowers with the Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers set and heat embossed them with silver embossing powder, then I stamped the other flowers and leaves in versamark ink, I really like the watermark on dark grey paper.
For the hello die cut I sort of lightly tapped it with the versa mark pad toward the middle and applied more pressure toward the bottom. When I applied the embossing powder I also brushed some away towards the middle leaving heavy cover toward the bottom of the word. This give it a dipped in silver look.
I originally put it on a black background but that wasn't quite right, so kind of pounced the embossing powder around the edge of a white panel and sprinkled the embossing powder around the edges. The lighter coating created this bumpy almost hammered look.
I am extremely happy with the way this card turned out. I appreciate you stopping by to take a look!
I am submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge!
