Eastern Blooms part 3

The last of the cards I made the other night (the others are shown here and here).

This one was quick & easy - the branch is stamped twice in Whisper White craft ink (a thick pigment ink), and the edges of the panel were sponged in the White as well.

I let the card sit for a little to allow the ink to dry - the craft ink, being oil based, takes a lot longer to dry than regular classic (dye-based) ink. This is an advantage if you want to emboss or use Heat & Stick powder, but a bit of a chore if you don't *g*.

Once the ink dried, I put a little dab of Two Way Glue on the centre of each flower and tipped Dazzling Diamonds glitter across the top (being careful not to sneeze before I managed to get the excess back in the container - and it being spring and all, and the hayfever acting up, this was no mean feat!).

It's very pretty in real life, but doesn't really show up so well in a photo.
