FTL177 Let Your Dreams Take Flight

Happy Monday everybody. Here's to another great sketch by Natasha! Instead of doing the usual 2 colors and 1 neutral, I added another color pretty much out of necessity to offset my Aqua Mist and Autumn Rose. A bit more detailed cards can still be clean and simple. Have you tried to use clear embossing powder over your water-based dye ink? It works like a charm adding that extra bit of color so it's not dull. I hope that you enjoyed my card today and that it provides you with some inspiration. My card is 4-1/2" square. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a very blessed day.
