Universal Language

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with NBUS, Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge, and The Paper Players. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I thought this was an appropriate sentiment considering we are all in a pandemic. 
Smiling is a universal language full of hope and joy.

I white heat embossed the global flowers and its stand.
This way all the inking I did around the edges resisted the white embossing making it extremely easy and foolproof. 

I used ZIG markers to place color down on the edges of the globe then went in with an aqua pen to feather out the color.
I wanted to use the color to complete the circular globe. Not too defined but the idea was still apparent.

  2. Shawna, this is so pretty! I love the white embossing and the dreamy soft blended colors! And that sediment is the best EVER! Take care and keep safe and thank you for sharing at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell (The challenge closes at 10 p.m. PST on the 31st. I edited the post to put that in.)
