Spreading a little kindness

Hello there! I'm back with another card using marbling techniques.

For this card I used 3 marbled panels: the blue background and the panel for my stamped flowers were made using alcohol inks on vellum, while the panel with my sentiment was made using a different marbling technique. When I was researching paper marbling techniques, I found examples of the suminagashi technique. I decided to give it a go using the supplies I had on hand, that is, reinkers instead of inks. I used some small yupo panels that I had lying ready on my craft table. Probably not the best choice, because it's a synthetic paper and ultra smooth. That's why the colours dried up very soft and light, but I really like this soft look. I hope to give this technique another go using regular cardstock soon.

I heat embossed my sunflowers (In Bloom: Anna's Flora, Winnie & Walter) in white embossing powder (SSS) and then heat embossed the flower hearts in sticky embossing powder (Ranger) and added gilding flakes. I fussy cut the flowers, leaving a small border.

I arranges my flowers and sentiment stamps and then stamped my sentiments (Kindness with Evelin T Designs, Winnie & Walter) using Archival jet black ink. To ground my sentiment, I added a tiny strip of my inked blue vellum, which I was left with after trimming my panel to size.
