Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, we had a mixed bag of weather, I put a loose fitting thin jumper on when I got up yesterday morning but I was soon regretting it, it's always hard to judge as our bedroom and lounge never really get full sun so they stay cool, but when I went into my craft room I could barely breathe!
It was so 'muggy' or 'Close' do you all have different words for weather terms????
Today's card was inspired by the great Jennifer Maguire, I have a Tim Holtz 3D Embossing folder called Botanical and I wanted to do the 'Letterpress' technique, so I inked up my brayer with 'Bermuda Bay' ink and ran it through the embossing machine, it's like magic when it comes out, green at in the background with lovely white flowers standing proud.
I added some versamark ink to the very top of the raised parts and added white sparkle embossing powder, just to give some extra detail, everything is better with a bit of sparkle, right???
I then used two old SU dies to create a frame and added the sparkle embossing powder to that too, I decided to use the same embossing folder in the background and line up the pattern for continuity, I used the same colour card as I did ink so that it all tied together. I finished by die cutting a pile of 'hello's and gluing them together for dimension.
The very last thing I did was to mount the piece onto a white card base. I quite like how it turned out.
I hope that you are all enjoying playing with your Embossing folders too.
I have Pat coming over today, so it will fell like the good old days, lol, nice to have some company for a change.
I hope that you are all having a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
