Good Morning Ladies,
Here we aren't the end of another week, they are flying by way to fast right now, the Girls school closes for Summer tomorrow, they have been home for the past week and a half though as they finished all exams and some of the Sixth Form group had Work Experience this past two weeks but the girls have decided to wait until next year to do theirs as the will turn 18 in February so they will have a lot more opportunities available to them.
I had a visit from. Mr Brown yesterday, I swear he had a look of relief as Paul sent to the door and not me in my dressing gown!!
Anyway that meant I had some new goodies to play with.
This card is the result of that play session, I bought a pack of Stampin'up! 'Whisper White' paper in this last order because I got to use some at the weekend meet up and it is so super smooth it feels like silk and it stamps like an absolute dream, I have had quite a difficult and frustrating journey with stamping card since Ann Marie Designs stopped their amazing stamping card, they tried to replace it with something else and it was horrendous but still the same price!!
Anyway I used a piece of the Whisper White card to stamp my new "Definitely Dahlia' background stamp onto, I used versamark and Clear Embossing Powder to create the 'resist technique' I then coloured over the top with 'Sweet Sugarplum' ink using a sponge, I love the results, I added a border of Sweet Sugarplum Striped ribbon with a lacy edge, made with the New Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, I used the same Basic Grey card that I used in my layers.
The sentiment came from the SU 'Beautiful Bouquet' stamp set.
I hope you like my card, it works with the Challenge too, Grey, Embossing and die cut (label). How are you getting on with yours.
Now I realised that you all don't have the Woodland Embossing Folder and /or a Brayer, I did mention that you could use a sponge to apply the ink or you can swipe the ink pad itself up the Embossing Folder. I thought you might have a Embossing Folder that you could use to get the effect. It really isn't a problem if you haven't got anything it was just a bit of fun, mostly to get you all trying the technique.
I hope you all have a good day, the weather is forecast to be rather changeable over the next few days, so you will all have plenty of craft room time hopefully XXX
Love and hugs to all
