The Ton Spring Release 2017: Day 2

Hello!  Welcome to DAY 2 of The Ton's Spring 2017 Release , Effie has released 18 new stamp designs, Coordinating Dies and 14 new couture mixes!  ALL NEW RELEASE ITEMS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE SHOP ON April 6.

For my first card I'm using Marvelous Perfumes stamp set.  I Heat embossed the pretty bottles with copper EP added a wash of color to give depth to the background. Then cut masks for each bottle and randomly stamped blooms from Wishful Wildflowers in Warm Hazelnut dye to give even more interest.

Layered the panel after cutting with the Large Double Stitched Rectangle die and embellished with Hot Cocoa Couture Mix.

I created a sweet background for the next card using Wishful Wildflowers.
I inked the blooms with Caviar Hybrid Ink so I could color the flowers with alcohol markers. And colored all around the with a pretty soft peach, then stamped several of the smaller images in the setall throughout the panel using Beach Blondie, Rose Quartz and Crystal Pewter dye inks. Trimmed the panel with the Large Double Stitched Rectangle die and embellished with Pink Diamond Couture Mix and Glitter Tape.
