Bee Crafty Polymer Stamps - Star Flowers - Wake Wonderful - Warm Gold, Pink & Brown

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty
I have been struggling for the last few weeks to get making again after slowing down over the festive period... so this called for some much needed Inkiness and my lovely Bee Crafty Stamps
Today's colour theme is Pink, Brown & Gold I loved playing with my stencils, embossing powders and distress inks and I really hoped that this was the push I needed to get back to crafting - messy inky fun!! so of course it has helped xx
Here is my project for today using the lovely 'Fabulous Flowers -Star Flowers' and 'WORDage - Wake Wonderful'
I trimmed down a piece of white pearlised cardstock to ink onto. I first inked the whole piece using 'Abandoned Coral' distress ink, I used a heat gun to speed up the drying process. I inked around the edges again to bring in more colour. I then used one of Bev's brilliant techniques of laying a stencil over my work, spraying with water and then taking off the excess with tissue this added a lovely textured look into the coral background. I think inked through the stencil using 'Tea Dye' distress ink, lightly in some areas and darker in others. I then inked the edges using 'Tea Dye' and then 'Walnut Stain' distress inks to add some depth to the colours. 
Using embossing ink I stamped the 'Star Flowers' into the corners but off the page as I wanted them to peek out a bit from the corners, I also stamped the edges using just the leafy swirl part of the stamp. I tipped gold embossing powder over the inked areas and then tapped off the excess, where the distress ink was a little wet still a dusting of embossing powder clung to it... a happy accident really though as I think it looks really pretty like that. I heated the powder using my White Heat Gun until it was all melted and shiney. 
I stamped the 'Wake Wonderful' WORDage stamp onto the centre of the page using brown dye ink. I matted this inked up page onto some brown pearlescent cardstock from my stash and then mounted onto a 7x7 cardblank. I finished the card with some Brown and Gold Ribbons and some Brown Gems... I didnt have any brown so I coloured in a few plain white gems using an Alcohol Marker.

Wowser Christmas & New Years were Amazing and I feel very rested after a few weeks at home with my Family x x I hope you all had a lovely Festive Season and i wish you all well for an Amazinf New Year xx
For my Project today I have mixed it up a bit with one of the Newer Floral Stamp Sets and a Wordage Stamp I again chose the softer/warmer look that I love love love
I cut down a piece of watercolour cardstock. I inked through an Inkables Template using 4 shades of distress inks
I stamped and embossed the Floral Corner using versamark ink, gold embossing powder and my trusty white heat gun 
I made more flowers stamped and embossed onto vellum using darker gold and white embossing powders, which I then cut out, dry embossed the backs using a ball tool and a soft mat and layered up using a hot glue gun
To finish the card I inked the edges using Pumice Stone distress ink and added a matt of pearlescent Gold cardstock
