I stamped the flowers in soft suede and then used clear embossing powder over them really quickly. If you're fast, you can totally emboss with our classic inks. I did this rather than watercoloring with it because I tend to have trouble with the red separating out with soft suede so I thought this was a great way to avoid that but still incorporate the color like I wanted to. My doily needed something so I sponged it with berry burst. A few of our glitter dots were the finishing touch along with a few gold accents. The dots are great because they come in various shades. For instance, if I'd used so saffron as my yellow, a few of the lighter shade dots would have worked well even though the catalog says they are crushed curry. I love when things are versatile!
Again, don't be afraid to cut your sentiments up into little bits and pieces. It often works a lot better than the whole thing, this one sure did! And adding a little bit of black card stock really made the sentiment pop!
