A little embossing...
Saturday, April 23, 2011
Finally a card! I love this week's sketch (WMSC44) at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, it's a great layout with the chance to do a little embossing, heat or dry. I opted for dry embossing with an embossing folder on some Prima botanical paper and then lightly sanded. I love that technique. Here's the sketch.
The colors are inspired by this week's color challenge at Color Combos Galore, inspiration board #189. I love the colors but my Robin's Egg turned out a little more green than blue. Oh well. You also had to add a little shimmer.
I used Text-It by Waltzingmouse Stamps to stamp the background at the top. The label is from Holiday Labels No.14 stamped in peach and the edges rubbed in a light pink. The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases also Waltzingmouse Stamps.
I did add a bit of shimmer to the embossing by rubbing a pearl powder over the top, I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo, it's a bit hard to capture! The embossing folder is called Cottage Floral and it's by Craft Concepts.
Don't forget to check out the amazing creations from the rest of the Mischief Makers and some of the WMS DT at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.
I hope you have a wonderful easter. We're off for a picnic in a nearby forest park this afternoon, there's a lovely lake with some swans and ducks waiting to be fed some bread! Have a lovely day!
