The technique she is sharing on her blog (first emboss with Clear embossing powder, then stamp the images and finally color the background with distress ink) I so simple and beautiful. I immediately wanted to try it for myself.
I think the result is beautiful and I love the cards. I think I'll make a few more cards like this with different ink colors and make a set out of it.
It is getting so hard to leave comments on blogger blogs that use Captcha.
What were they thinking changing the fonts recently?? - I am finding myself not leaving a comment half the times I want to write something nice to someone because it's just too hard to figure out what the words are.
Can someone please tell me what the letters are in the below pictures?
Someone has got to come up with a better system to prevent spam.
And just a final note to finish they rant post - the automatic spam prevention in blogger is really good, I had not had one spam posted on my blog and I don't use captcha on my blog comments.
Ok - enough for today. See you when I have time to create... (when my kids are 18 maybe...). Maybe I should start posting the list of things I want to create. This is as close as I get this days to actually creating..
The card today was done by the layout that the a blog named hero posted a few weeks ago, I liked it and saved it to be used when I have the time.
It's a simple card that uses lots of embossing.
I started by masking the sides of main panel. I then stamped it with versa mark and the Flower Dot stamp by Hero Arts. I then embossed it with clear embossing.
I used 3 distress inks and colored the main panel and then cleaned it with a damp cloth. The stamping moved a bit giving it a two layer look. It's not perfect but I king of like it, so I kept on going.
I then moved the eclips mask and draw the two silver lines to give some definition.
The birthday wishes was embossed with Silver and then popped on foam dots.
I am using this card to sumbit to the following challenges:
The inlinks giveaway by the great Vicky back on the "Clips-n-cuts" blog.
The "Who's The Boss?" challenge over at the "A Blog Named Hero" blog The challenge #3 on the Israeli challenge blog: "יוצאות מהקווים". The Put a Stamp on it challenge in the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog.
