H2H Challenge: Embossing
That has to be the loveliest word I've heard this week. Between Scrap Pack, a workshop and prepping for my Studio J class tonight, I've not had much me time...creatively speaking. And I've not been able to participate in the H2H Challenges for quite a while either! School breaks and traveling will mess with your scheduling I suppose.
But I'm happy to see the challenge this week was embossing because that means I have a card to share!
Here it is:
Stamps: CTMH Share The Magic (October 2010 SOTM)
Inks: CTMH New England Ivy, Cranberry, Versamark
Papers: CTMH New England Ivy, Cranberry, White Daisy, Black, Vellum
I used the same coloring technique as in this card. I haven't used it very often, but I sure love the look it gives.
How about a nice shiny close-up?
In case you missed the technique the first time, emboss your image on vellum, flip it over and color it in with markers and blending pens. It gives it a nice watercolored look. I used several CTMH markers to color the back of the image: Barn Red, Cranberry, New England Ivy, Olive, Grey Wool, Black, Honey, Grey Flannel, Vanilla Cream, Blush.
Well, I still have to get dinner planned and cleaned up before class starts so I'll sign off now. Have a great weekend everyone!
