Presto Patterns!

The Presto Patterns are in the Summer Mini (pg 15) and they might be easy to miss as you're looking through, but they are fun and very versatile! They are pre-embossed (shiny white) with six different patterns, so you can apply any ink colours in a variety of ways (I sponged three colours on the grid pattern in the card above). The pattern resists the ink showing the white pattern. This card design came from a sketch by Diane for this week's Stampin' Connection card sketch challenge.

I stamped two lilies from Fifth Avenue Floral with Basic Grey ink on Whisper White cardstock, then used a Blender Pen and Tempting Turquoise ink to colour outside the lines (I saw this card by Michelle and had to try it). I stamped the lily again with VersaMark ink on Tempting Turquoise cardstock and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss powder. The Clear Rhinestone brads are inside the Small Basic Grommets.
