Today I'm sharing a card I made using the eclipse tech . Have seem so many on Pinterest so just had to try  it . Started with white cardstock and using my newly purchased Distressed oxide inks I blended spun sugar , broken china ,fossilized amber and a touch of wilted violet . Love How colors blended so nicely . Then stamped one of Just Rite Florals from the set Black-eyed Susan in each corner and colored with my also NEW Chameleon markers. Next I positioned my Hello die from Quietfire in the center and ran it through my Big Kick . I then cut another Hello from c/s and layered them together ,then popped the hello back on the card with 3D mounting tape. Tiny pieces of the flowers can be seen on the Hello which is so cool . To finish I attached to black c/s ,added a border and butterfly and then attached to my card. Hope you like it and will give this tech a try.
