All you need is Love

This post is in featured on the Magenta blog today. I love this Magenta Floral Background stamp designed by Nathalie Métivier. It's beautiful, and it's sized perfectly to cover a card 5.5" x 4.25"

I stamped the Floral Background onto a 5.5"  4.25" piece of 80# Neenah solar white cardstock with Versamark ink, and embossed with JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder. Using a blending tool, I applied Distress ink in Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, and Blueprint Sketch, until the colors were well blended.

I matted the panel with So Silk black cardstock, and used another piece of the black cardstock to add the sentiment. 

I stamped the "All you need is love" sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed it with JudiKins White Diamond embossing powder. I cut a fishtail at the end to make it look like a banner, and popped it up with foam tape. I added a few sequins and it was done!
